I am sure that this isn’t really interesting to anyone except me. I just want to remember how in the world I ever completed school with so many little ones running around. This is an ideal day and a rough schedule. I like schedules, they make me happy!
However, this is my prayer for this year and maybe every year.
We pray that God would be glorified in our school year. Our prayers are that the kids would not only grow in their education but in character as well and that through learning, many valuable teaching moments will be utilized. Also, that we would see learning as a joy rather than a chore and that we would be wise in how we give and spend our time. Honestly, I pray most of all…for patience, for me! This is going to be a great school year!
