Back to School

Well, today is the big day.  Back to school.  Rhythm.  Homework.  Lunches to be made.  All of that and a whole lot more.

WeatherBoy, is not excited in particular.  But he's cautious by nature.  Third grade.  He's too big.

Jedi has never met a stranger, will have 150 friends by 10:38am, and is pretty much seeing this as an adventure.  But there's no way he's supposed to go to kindergarten, is there?  Is it really that time?

Peanut has another week or two before she gets back to her preschool life.  She has no idea how great it's going to be this year being the only kid at home with mom.  Spoiled.  Rotten.

But for mine and yours and you teachers too, my prayer...

Father, thanks for education and learning, things we too often take for granted and shouldn't in light of the world we live in.  Thanks for teachers and other investors who will work their hardest to make it worthwhile.  We all need patience.  We all need heart-level insight.  For kids in particular, help them to see their place of learning as a place of ministry too.  Let their light shine to make Jesus look as good as He really is.  Amen.
