Summer's Over -- First Day Of School

The enthusiasm is palpable.
School started up amid much anxiety and gnashing of teeth.

As a parent it's so easy to get caught up in the everyday drama of just getting the kids clothed and fed and off to school. Then at the end of the day the kids are in foul moods because they've been getting up late for the last 90 days.

The days are getting darker.

This summer we experienced fantastic land- and seascapes that glow in my memories. Jokes were created and consumed on the spot. Barbecues, travels, family, friends. So much fun.

Now the season of responsibility is upon us and I don't like getting yelled at. Parents as taskmasters are the norm at the beginning of any school year.

My point here is that somehow I can keep my eye on the prize and declare my stoke for all the blessings.

"Horse buddies, hell yeah!" as my daughter would say.
