School is Back in Session

School started yesterday. Today is the first full day. I have mixed emotions. On one hand, right now I am blogging and Sydney is sitting across from me playing with pennies. She's the only kid who isn't either in school or taking a nap. And that is fabulous. FABULOUS. On the other hand, gone is all my time with my children, waking up late, spending long lazy nights. In its place is the alarm ringing at 6:15 a.m., rushing to make sure dinner is ready at a decent hour of the evening, book bag checks, spelling lists and homework, laying out outfits and making sure everyone can find two socks of approximately the same size and shade of white. Not sure if the trade-off is worth it or not but right now, it sure feels like it might be. I wonder if Sydney would lay down on the couch with me for a short nap? Going to find out...

Hope you got that nap in!
Know that you're in my thoughts and prayers!
Isaiah 43:1-3a But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel...

Socks are my worst enemy! We wear crocs or flip flops all the time except to school so I always forget to bring them downstairs, forget to wash enough, can't find a pair, one had a hole... Seriously socks are my big stresser every morning :(
Hope you got a nap in! how is the platelet situation?

Always a comfort being reminded that the Holy Spirit Himself is praying for you!
Romans 8:26-27 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
