Monday Musings

Not much.  Why in the world did I even post something on a Friday?  Like a lot of material is going to happen between Friday and Monday...!  My life is riveting, but not that much.

Today I took our oldest and went to the local behemoth high school to get all registered and get the locker assignment and pictures.  It is kind of like a size whiplash.  You see our K-8 has met all our needs.  It is a mile away.  It is small and family-like.  The high school?  Not so much.  There are 2,300 students, 200 faculty members, two campuses, an indoor ice arena, a college-level stadium, etc.  My baby!  However, I've received wonderful and glowing reports from others about the experience so I'll step back and let life come our way.  But I might ask this right now?  How in the tarnation did we get a high schooler so fast?  Life passes like a dream...

So we are soaking up the last days of summer.  The girls have several sleepovers planned in the next week.  Preps are starting.  Tomatoes are ripening.  Grasshoppers are jumping.

One of our MYP was treated today with Starbucks.  When asked what name to put on the cup she responded, "Paige".  Um.  We didn't name you that.  But apparently that is the name choice this week.

And without further ado, I'll leave you with this:


  1. The dog and cat comics are the BEST! Just so true!

  2. Love your musings! I don't know HOW it happens so fast, I really don't. Enjoy the ride of HS, because it is gone before you know it. :-(

  3. Catching up on some blog reading....makes me want to blog your musings! We heard at convention about how dogs will respond to gentle words spoken in a mean way and cats respond to the can opener LOL!!! And of course, the spiritual part was we respond to the Spirit's dealings.
