Back to School

“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

 It has happened. Summer is over and the school year is officially underway. The first few teacher planning days were difficult to go to; my spirit just wasn't there. The actual first day of school, I cried; but Connor was a different story. For him, it was fun to go back to Grandma's house for the day! She has toys he doesn't have at our house, she has kittens, and she has Papa and Untle Tasey. It has been an adjustment for all of us except Connor. I am enjoying my students and I look forward to what this school year holds, but I find myself aching to see Connor and miss having him with me.

 Daddy is getting ready to go on his Man Weekend trip and has needed to get back in the swing of things so to speak. Enter driving range. Connor and daddy have started a weekly trip to the driving range recently and Connor is loving it! These pictures are from his first outing, and he did great! As long as he kept his eye on the ball he made contact and hit the water! I love his concentration in these shots, and how he's even got swagger in one of them. They end the night with milkshakes from McDonald's and yet Connor still seems to think upon mentioning it that they are going to a farm. So far he has asked for a pig, and always ends up singing E-I-E-I-O.

 This past Sunday was a lot of fun! After church the gang all headed to Lowes for another Planes Build and Grow event. This time it was El Chu and Daddy got to participate. It turned out cute, though we've already peeled off all of the stickers. They just didn't lay right, and the simple wood looks just as nice. I may paint him myself and then he'll really look cool! He still prefers the Dusty he made and I'm beyond surprised at how well it has withstood his rough play!
 Sunday was also special because Connor finally moved up into a real Sunday School class. I can't believe how big he is getting, and I am so thankful for our church and how special they make everything. I had already received a call from his new teacher Miss Jennifer and they were ready for him when we got there. His Sunday mornings will be structured now, and he'll even get music time, scheduled playground time, and a special arts and crafts activity each week. I know he will learn even more about Jesus, and we have a special key ring with each month's new Bible verse to learn. Psalm 18:30 "God's way is perfect."

While he was in Sunday School we were in "Big Church" and were surprised to see our video pop up on the big screens. It came out perfectly, and of course my favorite part is Connor's bit at the end. What a sweet Connor-boy!
