We moved Kara into Austin Peay State University this past Thursday. She is rooming with a friend from home and there are several of her friends that are also attending there. It is always nice to have a familiar face around.:) She has stayed busy all weekend with orientation activities and having a blast already. Classes start tomorrow so she will continue to have a busy schedule. Part of her scholarship requires her to work at the child care center there on campus a few hours a week so she is hoping to make some connections there and at church for some babysitting opportunities. She has already made new friends and connected with the Baptist Campus Ministry. She will go through Greek recruitment the week of Labor Day. I miss her and I cried when she turned to leave for us to go back home Thursday night. And I cried some last night but I'm happy that she is happy. I just miss seeing her sweet smiling face and her contagious laughter!
Kirk begins his fall semester at University of Memphis Lambuth Campus tomorrow. He has a busy schedule too with classes and work and I pray it goes well for him and Kara too.
Kali is off to a great start and loving all the extracurricular fun things that come with being in junior high like student council, ab club, ball games and friends over quite often. She is thrilled that she is old enough now to be a part of our church youth group and also attend Wednesday night at The Zone for youth sponsored by FBC. We just got back from our first youth outing this afternoon to redneck island (what all the locals call it) which is at our county lake and has all the inflatable slides and tons of things to climb on in the lake. She will definitely sleep well tonight.
I am enjoying my sweet kinders this year. This week our routine seemed to click with them and we all seem to be getting in the groove of things. I always look forward to spending my days with them because let's face it they do say the darndest things and they can be quite entertaining.
Praying blessings to all!
