I have two kids. They are both ‘rising’ into the next phase of their education; middle school and high school. The house is filled with anticipatory energy and a little ‘first day’ nerves. I have done my annual pre-September nesting where most all the closets and piles have been purged. It feels like a fresh start all around.
Next up, practicing being present with the kids as they navigate a world that I will have less and less influence in what they are doing/seeing/hearing/knowing. It is all good stuff and all a little unnerving from parental perspective.
I am blessed with 2 great kids, a husband of 19 years (as of next Tuesday) and a home that we are pleased to call our own…and a puppy that keeps us busy. I know that I am loved and supported beyond measure and that makes this ‘rising’ another great adventure for our family
The rising starts way too early – 5:30 am wake up call for the Freshman – YOWZA!
