I got Dissed !
The first day of school is always a big anxiety producer, especially for ME ! I think its from my own childhood memories of being split up from my Twin sis in the Third grade! That's a whole other "twin twister" subject..some other time!
Anywho, I'm standing in the chaotic cluster of 4 foot tall 4th graders all wondering where to line up for the teacher to come present herself and claim them into her stewardship....
When all of the sudden, as my grip was unconciously tightening on sweet Marky's hand....
Marky looked up at me and politely asked me if I wouldn't mind standing "over there" ....as his eyes indicated the direction of the grass with all the other mom's who were banished from hovering, too !
What ? Well I nevah ! ! (as my beloved Southern belle mother would say)!
I can't really say, never. But it sounded good.
Cause last year I got thrown off of the Alta High campus by Scotty after I took his picture in front of every Alta sign and every door and asked him if he needed more lunch money . You know, all the stalling tactics... It was his first day of High School !
I even called him on his cell phone after he went inside the school and tried to get him to come back out for more pictures!
Very tenderly, he said..."Mom, would you just go home already!" I circled around the school a couple of times in the car and finally gave up and went straight for a Diet Coke!
Back to Marky..After the "teacher-reveal", and the bell rang, Marky marched right in without even looking back ! I was crushed...in a Joyous way !
So far, that's how each day has been. No reportable incidents. No nothin !
On another "Angelic note"...
Sam has begun first grade. Yup, all day! I'm sure it's an adjustment for him. He's used to eating 3 or 4 breakfasts, 2 or 3 snacks, then 1 or 2 lunches..all before 11 am!
He comes home raving hungry and thirsty. Yet he seems happy. Another wonder of wonders- child of mine!
This year Scott is a Junior. He just asked a sweet young lady to the Homecoming dance! She even said, Yes! I'm so proud of him and the handsome, valiant young man he is becoming. Another wonder !
I'm sure all of you have similar stories in your hearts. I think of all of you who have been so important in our lives and have helped us and supported us and prayed for us.
I thank you with all my heart. I wish you all health and happiness.
