Last night was parent orientation.
It was also our weekly potluck night so Sam held down the fort while I headed to the school.
My mission...to make the rounds to four classrooms in the time given parents to stop in at two.
I collected papers at each stop along the way and concluded that I would be set for reading material for the week. I was also convinced that I missed important tips and instructions but there was no way to be present for all four entire presentations.
How am I going to keep all of this straight?
How are we going to manage homework for four kids?
How are we going to stay in communication with four teachers?
Then I got in the van, rolled down the windows and turned the radio UP! I started talking to God on the drive home while jamming out to the radio, the wind blowing in my face. "OK, God. You've got to work with me on this. I've got nothing...how?" Then I flashed back to all of the moments that I've repeated the words to the kids...
"Just do your best."
The truth is, I'm not going to remember everything, I'm not going to remember to sign everything.
But what I can do is, do my best. Funny that even us parents have to be reminded of this.
Then as I was jamming out with the wind blowing in my face I realized that all of the papers were sitting on the passenger seat. A gush of wind blew and I watched the papers almost fly right out the window! I panicked...shut the window quickly and managed to save the papers.
We've got this.
You've totally got this! :-)
How is the school year going for YOU so far?
