If your kids haven’t already started, this week marks the first days of school for you and your families. It’s funny how the start of school is something we dread all summer long; but when it finally gets here, there’s an excitement to get back into the routine, see old friends and make new ones, and finally wear those new shoes you bought!
If you’ve had any personal communication with me over the last few months, you know its been a crazy summer for the Hallahans. With my impromtu trip to California in June, a week working at summer camp with the whole family in July, immediately followed by a week heading up the preschool Vacation Bible School at our church, then a week at my parents while Dave took our youth group on a missions trip to Boston, finally ending with a leadership conference in Lancaster, PA, we settled back into our home last week for what felt like the first time all summer. Man, just writing that paragraph makes me sleepy.
