Back to School!

Apple Valley has a Modified Traditional school calendar, so the kids go back to school a lot earlier than other schools. We get several long breaks throughout the year, so we like it.

Kayley was so ready to go back today! We were ready for her to go, but its so hard to imagine our baby is in 1st Grade already! Where did the Kindergarten year go??? She wanted me to take her this morning - it was a last minute change since she had been saying she was going to take the bus. I was able to talk her into it - I had to get those 1st day of 1st grade pictures! I wanted to see her classroom and meet her teacher too. Chuck is on vacation this week, so he got to go too. We got to school early to avoid all the traffic and parking chaos! We ran into a few of her friends from last year. She was excited to see them. She only ended up with about 4 kids from last years class in her new class. Her teacher, Mr Maglinte seems really nice - it was good to see kids he had last year coming in to say they missed him.

I guess I better get off the computer and get some stamping done now that I have ALL day to stamp! :)

Our traditional pose of Kayley on the first day back with her new Hello Kitty backpack. She had to have the one with wheels or as she put it "the wheelie one".

Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.

I am wearing a pair of shoes.
They are ugly shoes.
Uncomfortable shoes.
I hate my shoes.
Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.
Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.
Yet, I continue to wear them.
I get funny looks wearing these shoes.
They are looks of sympathy.
I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs.
They never talk about my shoes.
To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable.
To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them.
But, once you put them on, you can never take them off.
I now realize that I am not the only one who wears these shoes. There are many pairs in this world.
Some woman are like me and ache daily as they try and walk in them.
Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as much.
Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by before they think about how much they hurt.
No woman deserves to wear these shoes.
Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger woman.
These shoes have given me the strength to face anything.
They have made me who I am.
I will forever walk in the shoes of a woman who has lost a child.
