A Bundle of Myrrh

"My beloved is unto me as a bundle of myrrh." Song of Solomon 1:13

August 18: I’ll admit the first week of school was rough. So many tech issues and well, sitting at the table on the tablet most of the day is hard for EVERYONE! Do I need to say especially if you’re 5…or 7? We got through it and I began to dread the next couple months but miracle of miracles Friday night we were told by the district that K-2nd graders would only be required to “attend” in the mornings.

We have no idea how this is going to work, it does seem like a looming train wreck but I’m really going to give a good try.

September 11th, 2020 by Aubri

August 14: Before school would start back Phil took the oldest 5 babies down to Kansas City for maybe a “once in a lifetime” experience. Worlds of Fun had tickets marked down due to COVID so it was the perfect time to get 6 of them, something we wouldn’t normally splurge on. I’m so glad they got to do this, they had so much fun!
