It’s September! Woohoo! This month ushers in a bunch of “new” experiences and milestones in our family. Superbug returns to school in a few more days. Honeybee begins her first day in the toddler room tomorrow. FatherWinter and I started our first week of classes at the accredited Bible college at our church. FatherWinter’s first class was last night. Mine was tonight! How is that for new experiences?
I am currently taking Gifts of the Spirit. I started off wanting to take the class simply to learn more about what God wills for my life, what my purpose in Him is, and what He wants me to accomplish while I am on Earth. Some how that ended up with my signing up to begin degree coursework toward a new Bachelor degree! I’m still not sure I’m quite on board with that one, but I’m willing to ride this out to see where it leads. I really enjoyed tonight’s first class and am looking forward to a very inspirational and important season. Somehow I think this is going to be bigger and more important to me than I even realize.
Speaking of important, I learned some important new information for Superbug tonight. Superbug’s bus schedule arrived and since there are more students in the neighborhood route now (new subdivisions), Superbug’s bus will come ten minutes earlier than it has for the past two years. When I told him, he was kind of taken aback. (Smile). He figured it meant his morning schedule would back up by ten minutes from now on. He’s right, but I am not complaining. Because Superbug’s bus typically picked him up later in the morning, I would always get to work about 9:15 since I didn’t leave for work until he was safely onboard and couldn’t get to work until Honeybee was dropped. With him on the bus ten minutes earlier, I can get to work earlier by a few minutes and that extra time is appreciated.
We find out tomorrow who Superbug will have as his teacher for the upcoming school year? He’s anxious to find out. He’ll meet the teacher and view his classroom this week at Open House. Then it’s all out planning for the next few weeks’ activities. I was looking at the calendar today and it’s a busy month!
We have our NFL Fantasy Draft Cookout/Potluck, then Superbug has his first day of school, our friend and her fiance get married on the same day as Superbug’s birthday (which we’re celebrating that evening), followed by a baby shower for my sister in law, and prayerfully a finalization notice for Honeybee’s adoption is coming soon. Truth be told, October is my favorite month, but September is quickly giving it a run for the money. Especially with all of these fun activities scheduled. Stay tuned!
