written 8/24/11 – Maggie got together with the Girl Scouts last week. They made smoothies and covers for three ring binders. Maggie is not really active in Girl Scouts, but she does like it. Some ladies from the local Girl Scout office have come to Maggie’s school to have Girl Scout meetings with anyone that is interested. They went to camp too. What the ladies are hoping for is that a parent from the school will become a leader and take over the troop. There hasn’t been anyone who can make that commitment, which is sad, because the Girl Scouts are a good group. I was a Girl Scout and had a great time, but if I made that big of a commitment to Maggie, I would need to make that big of a commitment to my other two kids too.
Beth has her first day of school today. It is freshman orientation. She is so excited. She took off all of her bracelets and necklaces until she could see what was allowed at her school. She has two days of orientation. I am not sure what day classes start for her. She is going to ask a teacher which day school starts. We all prayed for her this morning for a good year, just like we did for Maggie, and like we will do for William. We pray for a good year, their safe return each night. The other two kids, the ones that we are not praying over, can pray for them too, but they don’t. They will let me pray, but aren’t into it enough to add anything. I took her picture. They also get their picture taken on the last day of school. Someday I will find all of their first and last day pictures and put them into frames.
Maggie needs a cultural event and volunteer hours this year. We need to do these soon, since she doesn’t have much homework yet. I went to the library this morning and got all of the local free newspapers to see what cultural events were going on this weekend. A cultural event is an event like going to the Art Museum, or seeing a band or going to a parade. They can be free or have a cost. If there is some art displayed in the front windows of a store, it’s not a cultural event and doesn’t count.
Our beans have come up in the garden, but nothing else. I think that we put too much dirt on the other rows. I am going to re-plant the other three rows today. Each row is only about four feet long.
What has been happening at your place lately?
