First Day of School

Mason...pre-ear infection
He loves to "clean" this cabinet.
My big first grader.
They love each
I can't believe Madi started first grade today. I took her up there this morning and helped her get settled in. She was so excited to learn! I can't wait to hear about her day.
I took Mason to the Dr. this morning and as I suspected, he has ear infections in both ears. I stayed home today. He still had fever at lunch, so that was just the best option for me. It's kind of been nice though to be home in a clean and quiet house. He's napping now. I'm fixing to head that way too and take a snooze before I go pick the other two up. It's been a nice day getting to spend it at home with him. He is the happiest sick baby I've ever seen in my life!
You are all right in what you said in your comments on my last post. God's grace is sufficient and I know that. I've never stopped believing that, there are just some things I don't get sometimes. I haven't finished reading The Shack yet. I gave it to my mom to read on Sunday. Kind of wish I had it today, it would have been a perfect day to finish it up. I think part of my thinking has come from that, and then just a whole bunch of other stuff lately. Mix all that in with being tired...and voila...there you have it.
I do believe. I don't question that. I don't know...I can't really explain it right now. I guess I'm just human and struggle with life questions like we all do sometimes. But I DO know how redeeming God is. I do know what all he has already done for me, and just because maybe He's not working on MY time table, doesn't mean He isn't working and has forgotten about me. You know what they say, "God's timing is perfect." Hahaha...see, I even say the one liners. I really do believe that. I just need to have patience.

I can't wait to 'discuss' this book more with you because I am very interested in your insight and thoughts. I struggled with the depictions but want to talk about that more. I can't believe Madi is a first grader either!! You HAVE to post about her first day, get direct quotes- she has some of the best! Sorry to hear lil guy is sick but at least it isn't serious and you can have a little of a break, perfect for the big first day too. I can't wait to see you and visit and catch up. Praying for little dude and you too on your last post. I TOTALLY agree with so much of what you said.

I want to read the shack again, I read it quickly and was struck by the ending. I did feel a sense of peace after finishing the story which is probably what I needed at the time. I hope Mason is feeling better today!

Madi looks like she is ready for an adventure!! I don't think much will slow that girl down. She makes the most of each moment! I can't believe that she is so big.
