First Day of School... again.

 The children started their first day of school... public school, that is, here in our new state of Mississippi. Such sweet smiles and excitement.
 How could this day get any better?
 This was the actual reality of that morning and pretty much every day since.  We keep hoping it will get better, but there have been some challenges that we are working through.
The Dude has only come out of school and said he has had a good day twice and they have been in school for over a month already.  Miss Boo is having a harder time.  I am in the office of her school at least once a week and for the first couple of weeks, it was three times a week.  I know the principal well!  Not because she has gotten in trouble, but is having a hard time adjusting.  With that in mind, I have a meeting with her teacher on Monday to resolve some issues with him not letting her go to the bathroom and that leading to some accidents that have led to her number one bully (Andrew) having more than enough ammunition to make her life more miserable.

I just keep thinking that things are going to get easier for them, but I still see them struggling with this move in so many ways.  I hate seeing them unhappy and especially watching Miss Boo go through these trials.

OK... some positives.


Thinking, thinking....

Just kidding.  Well, maybe not.  We have had regular family prayers in the morning and I see it bringing our family together.  We have had to regroup and rely on each other and that has been the Blessing that our family needed the most.

For that I am grateful tonight.
