It is quiet in here.
Baby is taking a nap, hopefully long enough for me to get a few things done. All the other kids are in school, and hubby's at work.
This summer sure went by fast, and I'm not sure if I'm ready for fall, but, ready or not! Here it comes!
Our little guy started Kindergarten. So far he likes it. His teachers are nice and fun and the kids all seem like a good bunch. It wasn't easy sending him off, both hubby and I were nervous and a bit worried, and I don't think either of us slept very well the night before school started. We did pray for all our kids though, starting new schools, again...
Sometimes I wonder how they'll be effected by all of our moves and constant changes in their lives. But I have to trust that they'll be OK and that God is with them. As a parent though, I find that I question my actions, and I often feel that I might be doing the wrong thing. I guess knowing I am TRYING to do my best, is some comfort.
My parents were here for 9 days, and we enjoyed their visit. My older brother and his family came for a few days as well, as did my in-laws. While they were all here, we held our baby's baptism. We had such a nice and fun last weekend of summer!
Tomorrow we are planning to hike up in Hiawatha National Park (only a short drive from here). It's been raining a fair amount lately, so hopefully tomorrow will lend us some sunshine when we head out! I love exploring this new city, especially the nature around here! So beautiful.
Well, I need to get some stuff done, while I have a chance! Have a good weekend and happy new school year to all of you who have kids in school :)
