The Summer Post

Another summer is closing its doors on us… each day I’ve thought about how fast the hours go by. It’s sure fun to anticipate the future and in one respect, I’m thankful for things going quickly. But another part of me wishes the days could be a little slow. There may have been a day or two this summer where I felt bored or exasperated, but for the most part, we just had a bunch of fun! Our season of summer is something I cherish already, and I can foresee that over the years, it will become such a special time of growth and closeness with my family. I sure love teaching, and one huge perk is that I get to warp worlds — one tunnel leads to the stay at home world and the other tunnel to the working world. God has given me the gift of both!
