And just like that, *snaps fingers*, summer vacation is over.
Today is a big day for our family. Madeline has started her Junior year, Jackson third grade. There's no doubt in my mind that with the combination of great friends and excellent teachers their years will be amazing ones. Challenging at times, yes, but completely worth the growth they'll experience-not to mention the memories they'll make.
We all seem to be back in school mode, attending or preparing to, and to all the parents and families out there, here is a prayer as we all enter this new year together.
Thank you for the gift of education in every form. As our children prepare to start a new year may confidence be their foundation, may grace be their guide, and may hope be their compass towards a bright future. I pray they would have eyes to see the needs of those around them and a heart to love well. May they face each day with positivity, knowing that not matter what comes their way, they will never face it alone. In your name we pray.
