Getting ready.....

 During the first week of this month { can it be already??}, several of our children attended their very last week of VBS {their 6th} with very good friends.
That was it.
All the extra summer activities that are available in our community have ended.
No more VBS.
No more lunches at the high school.
No more reading programs or fun evenings at the library.
No more camps.
We are all getting in gear for another school year.
Our local school district starts on August 22.
So we see lots of Mom's, with school supply lists in hand, shopping for school supplies in Wal-Mart.
We see advertisements for school physicals and vaccinations.
We hear of football practice up and going {and in this heat!!}.

I have also been getting myself ready for our upcoming fall and winter season of learning.
I've been checking lots of websites for the best price for the curriculum we use.
I'm trying to think through how to make this school year less stressful than last year with an added student this year!!
Garrett is starting his kindergarten studies this year, and he is very excited.
I'm thinking about new things we want to accomplish and goals to set in learning for each of my children.
This year our school will have an 8th grader, 6th grader, 4th grader, 2nd grader, and kindergartner!!

For the last several years, two ladies from our former church have asked if they could help us with school supplies!!
They are such a blessing to us and their generosity toward us has always amazed us!!
Here is what came through our door last week:

"Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits....."
Psalm 68:19
