it was the first day of school today.
mia is in first grade
asher begins kindergarten
we are staying home this year
we are getting ready for something big
and the need to stay close is present
there were no buses, no new backpacks or class supply lists.
no need when the classroom is your kitchen table.
but there were new books, new crayons and new adventures waiting to happen.
there were conversations laced with anticipation last night,
wonderings of what we will do this year,
where we will go,
what we will learn.
and to be honest
i don't know all those answers
but He does
and He gives me the answer for today
how to do today
ideas to make it work
trips that they will love
friends we can connect with
so we began school today
with barely a plan
but with books and prayers and pledges to the flag
with pencils and new journals
with first day of school pictures
and with His help
we will have a great year
