First day of school

I was thinking today and I realized something. Tomorrow starts another school year here in New York. This is the first year that Krystle will not go back to school. And, this would have been the first year of school for Jenna. I can hardly believe that Jenna is 5 now and would have started kindergarten this year. I know she is in a better place. But there are times that I still long to have her with us. I wish I could hold her in my arms but I know that Jesus is holding her for me.

Wow, it is already September. Where has the summer gone? It always seems to fly by so fast that I seem to forget to enjoy it like I should.

It has been a summer of many changes for me. Some have not been so easy and I know that some of the changes are still happening and that is not so easy for me to deal with at times.

Krystle is enjoying her new-found wings. She is also finding out what it is like out in the world on her own. She has called me to ask my advice about things that she needs guidance with. I am glad that I can be here to help.

We just got back from a long weekend of camping. It was nice to get away, but it is also tiring at the same time. I have always loved camping. I was not feeling well the first full day that we were there so that put a damper on the first part of our weekend. The weather was so beautiful. We could have not asked for better. No rain at all. We camped in a borrowed camper. It was nice to have a camper with a working bathroom, hot water, etc. I know, I know, some would say we are not "real" campers, but I like some of the comforts of home away from home. I have went camping in a tent before, but I actually prefer the camper! :)

Well, I have to close for now and go check the laundry and get ready for bed so I can be rested for work tomorrow.
