I can’t believe that the summer is on the last day for our kids. It has gone by so fast. Fortunately they are getting excited to go to school, at the beginning of summer they would ask how long they had before they had to go back to school, they wanted to make sure that it was a long time.
It has been a really fun summer for all of us. We got to go to Disney World, they got to go with me on our mission trip and spend the week with Gramps and Grammy, went to the zoo a couple of times and swam a lot!! I am going to miss them as they go off to school for the day, but the good thing is that I will start working at the church.
I was extremely thankful for the way that the interim youth pastor position worked out for me this summer. I was able to do the work as the youth pastor at home and spend more time with them this summer, which was awesome!! I felt like I was able to keep a solid balance of spending time with them and preparing stuff for the youth.
As the kids get ready to start their new school year it is crazy to think that Gavin and Halee will be in Kindergarten and 1st grade. They are both officially in school, where as Gavin was in more of a day care situation. I pray that this year they will both have an awesome year and learn a lot. I pray that they both apply themselves and work hard at their school work. I pray that Kristee and I both can be extremely supportive in their school work and as I go back to work we can manage our time and devote time to our family. Looking forward to what God has in store for us this school year.
