I'm usually thrilled to send my boys off to school, but this year it seemed summer was just too short. I am happy that school has started and new adventures for the boys will too. As I'm sitting here blogging, Preston is still sleeping (9:30am) and Nathan is sitting at the bar drawing and eating cereal. It's SO quiet. I will be able to get my long to-do list accomplished...finally!!
Last night, the boys gathered their new outfits together and loaded their backpacks with school supplies. We made teacher gifts and their lunches. Then we talked as a family about the upcoming year and each of their goals. Scott was also able to give each son a blessing, and we ended the night with a huge feast dinner (steak, potatoes, corn on the cob and watermelon with a brownie sundae dessert). We capped it all off with family prayer and a family hug.
