Back to school and all it brings

Daniel started school again on Tuesday. Freshman. 9th grade. That alone is hard to believe. Since Laura starts work at 7a, this means I take Daniel to school, since LCA is now no longer right across the street but in a new building closer to the campus of Liberty University. We were on time every day, but it also meant I averaged 5, maybe 6 hours of sleep. I really felt it by the end of the week. So, with both younger children still at home, and Daniel back in school, my walking suffered as well. I did manage to get to the trail a couple times this week, pushing the double stroller, but did not do the entire 4 miles either of the times. So, lots of adjustments. I got my work for my MBA class submitted in time both weeks. Still finishing text book reading for week 2 and now need to begin research for our group paper. I have a group from Florida and one who is serving in Iraq. The great part about the week was getting Daniel's old room painted and laying a new carpet, moving in the beds. The kids love it. They play together better. They sleep in their own room through the night. As David says, "I'm not afraid." He was practically dancing and leaping for joy Tuesday night when we laid the carpet. Laura and I lead worship in the morning, so I'll close here.
