Well last night after everyone was tucked into bed I snuck downstairs and had to get the decorations going. My oldest son Brandon is returning to high school today. It's just not ANY first day of school, it's his first day as a SENIOR in high school. I couldn't let the day begin without some festivities. I went into the storage room and got out the balloons and ribbons and decorated the kitchen in the school colors. I was hoping he wouldn't come down for a midnight snack and spoil the surprise. I waited patiently for the alarm to ring this morning.
After he drove off to leave for what will be his last year at home, my husband and I held hands and prayed for him and all the plans God has in store for him. We have officially begun the school year routine! Summer is coming to a close and this saddens me, but there are so many wonderful times to look forward to throughout this school year.
