Back to School

“I miss my friends and having a regular schedule. I used to complain every day about having to go to school, but being in quarantine has really made me appreciate being in class.”

“Learning at school definitely helps motivate me to get my work done, because I’m in the environment to do work and there’s really nothing else I can do.”

We see in these comments that children need to be social in order to thrive.  Let’s make it our goal to encourage our children the best we possibly can and uplift our fellow parents as well.

Thinking about kids going back to school brings back memories of my child’s first day of school.  I was a nervous wreck and she was as calm as she could be.  She couldn’t wait to make new friends outside of our circle.  After seeing all of her excitement it put my mind more and more at ease.

I remember how busy it can be to have a child or children in school and trying to juggle home life, school activities and the household.  To tell the truth, it was just as chaotic when my child was at home so maybe not so much different from everyday life.

I was so excited when I discovered there was a cookbook that had some of the easiest recipes, that my family loves, to help me out with dinner.  Kimberly Ritters Busy Moms cookbook has been a life saver and I would love to share this discovery with you.  Just follow my link at the bottom of the page for more information on how you can get a copy.

In closing, I would like to leave you with one of my favorite bible verses that has really helped me through this whole process.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
Joshua 1:9 | NIV
