So in two days my two sons will be starting a new year of school. One will be entering junior high and the other will be entering the 3rd grade. Luckily this is the last weekend before school and I will be relaxing at home watching some football and drinking a large cold glass of ice water. The wife and I decide to do school shopping 2 weeks ago which turned out to be the best decision we have ever made during this time of the year.
As a dad I’m so excited because the boys get to see their friends and find out what exciting things they all did during the summer. Parents, take advantage of this time with your children before they return to school. Spend time with them as they enter the world of elementary, middle or high school because soon they will be focused on schoolwork, friends and extracurricular activities. You won’t see much of them by the time you get off work and they get home. I love my boys and hope all of you understand the blessing you have in your children. Like my mom use to say “they grow up fast so make sure you spend time with them, before you know it they will be in college and you at home alone with your wife”.
