All good things must come to an end. This summer is one of them. I have thoroughly enjoyed the time at home with the kids, I really have, but I also know it is HIGH TIME to get this family back to a routine. Even my son told me yesterday as we were labeling all his school supplies “Yeah, mom, it IS time”.
My own mother taught me that God has a reason for all his timing. It is great to see summer break begin and it is nice to see it end as well. There is a reason why God lets you have children while you are young, and there is a reason you can not have them too late in life. Just a few examples of her many words of wisdom.
And the best thing my mother taught me? at the end of the day, when all is said and done, everything WILL turn out “fine”. I have to remind myself of this very often. To have faith that all will be fine in the end. Our big changes ahead regarding school is a perfect example. My son will go on his way in a normal routine, as he is definitely a creature of habit in every sense of the word.
My daughter has a bigger challenge ahead of her as she will be going to a new school in an unconventional way, which really does suit her personality. She being the more adventuresome child and flies by the seat of her pants. I am confident, just like my mother taught me, it will all turn out “fine”.
So, the image pretty much wraps up the humor my SON gives me each day. I have to laugh as I looked at it. 90% of this image is HIM to a “T” . He is such a pack-rat, particular and full of quirks just like his mother!!! You never quite know what will end up in his backpack!!! and he will be equipped from head to toe on the first day of school!! He will be ready and waiting 15 minutes before the bus arrives on the first day .
….and I will be ready as well.
