First Day Of School

on August 16, 2012

Is it possible for me to have a Freshman in High School?????? Surely not!!! I'm way too young for that. However I dropped my boys off this morning at school and yes, my oldest is walking into the High School. I was really doing okay today. I've cried almost every day this week, but this morning I woke up with excitement and confidence. Only when I pulled up did I almost start crying. I said to the boys, "OH, I think I'm going to start crying". They both responded with a loud "MOM!!! PLEASE WAIT TIL WE GET OUT OF THE CAR". Which made me laugh for the moment. Here they are... I think they've both grown 3 inches over the summer.

Yes, you see an arm brace on my oldest. It was quite devastating at first. We've grieved and are now moving toward focusing on the healing. For those who know us, you know how much Spence LOVES football. He has been working soooo hard to be ready to begin High School football. So, when he broke the growth plate in his throwing arm last week, it was tough to swallow. I KNOW, things could be much worse, but when you see your kid so disappointed and sad, it breaks your heart. He will be out more than likely 8 weeks, but we pray mostly that he just has a full recovery.

Price is going into 6th this year. I think it's going to be a great year for him. He's decided not to play football and focus on baseball this fall. He's really grown and changed a lot this summer which is allowing him to walk into the school doors with more confidence. I'm happy for him and can't wait to find out how his first day was.

Anyway, I'm excited to see what God is going to do in the life of my boys. New teachers, new friends, new experiences. We get to experience new every day if we just look around.

"I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord, be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord" Ps 27:13-14

Let's wait and see what God does:)

Have a blessed day, Denise
