Where have I been??? Spending lots of time with family! Although the weather doesn’t show it, fall is definitely here! The smell of “freshly sharpened pencils” is in the air (that’s a quote from the Meg Ryan/Tom Hanks movie, “You’ve Got Mail”)! School starts next Wednesday, and we will be starting back in the Gospel of John. We will begin in John 17, and I can’t wait!
God has been teaching me so much this summer, but the main theme has been to trust Him! I argue so much less with Him than I used to, because I have seen His faithfulness proved over and over. I will be teaching a new grade level this year (fourth instead of fifth), and can see God’s hand so clearly in moving me. I will remain at the same school and in the same classroom, so the changes will be just curricular. This old dog is ready to learn new tricks!
As I start the school year, I’ve been thinking about all that goes on within a classroom and on a playground, so when my daughter, Molly, asked me to write a guest blog on her blog site, I reached back to when she was in school to offer some tips to moms about letting God be God in their children’s lives.

Meanwhile, I’ll be meeting you in the morning again starting next week! So much to learn!
