I have to admit I wasn’t the best young lady going to school
when I was younger. I remember several times in kindergarten my Dad had to
carry me to the bus, because if he didn’t, as soon as they opened the door, I
took off and ran in the opposite direction. (OOPPSS.) And I cried, so much so

school”—and yes, I still have it today.

first day of school for my boys. I did
read every single one of the 300+ comments,
so much of what I read are things that I have said to my boys over the
years and said again yesterday as we drove to school. But I loved being able to
show them your posts and say, “See, Mom does know what she’s talking about.”
Isn’t it funny how hindsight is 20/20?
I pray that this
school year—all over our great country—is blessed for every single student out

schedules and running this kid here and the other one there, I kind of like to
send them off to school so I know for at least eight hours they are contained
in one spot!
