Oh good Lord surely the beginning of school is definitely here. There is no “tired” like the beginning of school educator-tired. This is day 6 of the 2019-2020 school year and countless hours have been spent getting our campus and staff ready to usher in the cherubs. Not to mention the schedule pick ups, registrations, and Meet the Teacher Night that has already happened. So while I helicopter parent outside of my youngest son’s football practice at his school (which he is COMPLETELY stoked about by the way) let me do a quick update:
It is HOT. Texas hot. August in Texas hot. My favorite morning weather personality must have anticipated my melodramatics (along with others) because he assured the viewers this morning that we have had fewer 100+ temperature days this summer than last summer or other years. But logic is out the window.
Thus while I planned to leisurely walk around the track during Wade’s workout with a friend, all I can do I take pictures of him stretching. I can not leave this shaded area. I refuse. My life depends on it. 🥵
I try to send daily inspirational messages to my twins while they’re chasing their dreams. Sometimes it’s a general reminder of God’s sovereignty and grace, my prayers for them, a funny joke or something specific based on their needs. Today is my daughter’s final exam for her chemistry class she took this summer. This is what I sent her. So chemistry exam and assigned professor: please be nice to my baby. And God if they are not nice to your baby, intercede on her behalf. Signed, Me
