The Wednesday before school starts every year, our school has a Back to School BBQ. It is time to meet the teachers and check out your classrooms before school starts.
We went to the BBQ and I suddenly felt very happy to be back. My children were happy to see their friends and I was happy to see mine. I didn’t realize how much I missed them and the environment that Rhema has. I love it. It felt so good to be “home” again.
I didn’t realize how much my friends feed my soul.
I was missing them more than I realized. I love Rhema, the boys school. It is a special place. It feeds me and makes ME grow not too mention what it brings to my children’s lives.
This year was a bit sad. We lost some families from our school, including our principal, Mr. Hendricks. He has been there 23 years and as much as it is his time to move on, he will be missed greatly. Under his leadership I grew so much. I found passions I didn’t even know I had. I appreciate so much his confidence in me to try new things and learn so much!
Ray, we will miss you. Thank you for all you are, as a principal, teacher, friend. You are a special gift from God.
To my other friends that have gone … for different reasons, may God bless you as you seek what is best for you and your family.
So it begins… the routine, homework, schedules. I am not ready just yet… but bring it on!
