First Day

Today, for the first time in five years we had a First Day of School event without tears. That includes me.

The house is a bit quiet today. The first day in The New House without them. I look forward to going to get them soon.

The Boy and The Girl wanted to dress exactly alike today. This (obviously) means that The Girl has to wear jeans or shorts and a big ole' t-shirt. Not what I want to send her in on the first day of school. I convinced them that dressing in the same color scheme was kind of like dressing alike. So they ran into their rooms and looked at what they had in the same color scheme. They settled on brown.

I have had a good day. I worked out, read, did some laundry, ate some lunch and now will go clip some coupons. I am hoping couponing in the desert is easier...I'm not counting on it.

I have also been meditating on this scripture since the wee hours of the morning:

Let, The Boy and The Girl, who belong to the Lord rest in Him, for He shields them all day long, those the Lord loves, rest between His shoulders.

Deuteronomy 33:!2, (Paraphrased)

La Vida Dulce!

Now, can you 'splain to me why they are starting school in mid-summer?

Year round schools. Our district here is year round. This is the first time I have ever done the year round schedule. I have always avoided this schedule (they were big in NC) but this district is excellent, so we shall see how it goes!
