Summer is Nearly Over…

July 27, 2006

It’s hard to believe that Summer Break is almost over! School starts one week from today. Tonight, Jason and I will go to Parent Orientation at Holy Name (you have to go every year to meet the new teacher and find out about new procedures, etc). Sunday, Jonas will go to his Open House and meet his new teacher. We have no idea who this will be, but we are sure that she will be wonderful b/c all of the teachers at HNS are wonderful.

I’m excited about school starting because I miss the regular schedule and I miss seeing all of the after school kids and the youth group kids and the FCA kids on a weekly basis! I’m excited about football games and school events…but it’s hard to watch kids grow up so fast. I mean, I remember when some of my new youth groupies were in First Grade! It’s just hard to believe I’ve been here for six years. It’s been a roller coaster ride, but I’m always grateful to God for calling me to such a wonderful job!

So pray for the kids in Henderson County as they go back to school. The last week or so has been a week of dealing with the death of one our varsity football players, so it’s especially important to pray for his family and friends. And pray that God would again use our church to open the doors to kids in our community–after school kids, youth group kids, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, etc.

  1. The summer did go fast! We still have 2.5 weeks, but that’s still very soon. I’m glad you are looking forward to the many things that go along with the school year. For as ready as I am come May, I am also looking forward to a new year and a new group of kids. I guess what you expressed, and how I feel, is a good indication of that we are doing what the Lord has for us to be doing! yay! 🙂 I remember when you got a word about being a youth director (or s’thing along those lines) and I was so amazed because I was like “OHMIGOSH! That’s what she thought she was supposed to do!” LOL How far we’ve come since that day in may nearly 10 years ago. *sigh* How time flies. Anyway…glad to know you are geared and ready to go!

    Wow, it is so cool that you still feel so blessed to have the job that you have. That’s a great sign of having been planted in the right place!
    I know your summer has been eventful, and I hope this next phase is blessed as well!
