First Day of School

Yep, it's true. My kids went back to school today. Just as well, since the current mixture of heat and humidity makes us feel like we're living in the Amazon. We've had that much rain this July too. Won't be long and we'll feel the need to put the house on stilts...but I digress! (I miss you, former mountain climate we called home!)

School. Inside. Air conditioned. Supervised. Without Mom. Free of charge. Ahhh...

Lydia: Some of my Indian friends from last year passed California.

Michaela: It was a good day, but we didn't learn how to read yet.

And it was a good day. No one passed away, and James's strength actually picked up during chemo...and has remained strong since. I like to believe it was round about the time you all started praying. It was either that, or the Thai food we had for lunch. (Because man, that lunch was so good I'm still thinking about it 12 hours later!)

Love you all - thanks for the prayers! You made our day!


  1. SO cute! Bummed about the reading part too, Michaela. Will continue to pray for James' strength!

  2. Love the first day of school picture. Praise God for James feeling stronger!
