The days are moving slowly along! When I ask for time to slow down, I don’t mean in the time of uncertainty. I want time to slow down when we are celebrating, laughing, and loving life together.
As I am looking to organize a little, I usually start with things that don’t really matter (don’t ask me why, I just do). So I started with the notes, schedules, pictures clipped to the refrigerator. Both of my boys made their high school volleyball teams just a few weeks ago. Their volleyball schedule is on the refrigerator. My oldest, John, was excited to make the team and doesn’t mind the practices, so he has been marking off each day it passes. My freshman, Andrew, although excited to make the team, was dreading practices during spring break, so as soon as school was cancelled, he crossed off the two weeks of cancellation and spring break.
“Could I throw out the March schedule?”
“No! As of right now school is cancelled until March 30th. March has 31 days,” John stated. “Oh and can you call to make an appointment for the orthodontist?”
“Um, not sure they are taking patients right now.”
“Just call and see.”
“OK. As of now, April 6th is the earliest they can see patients. They will let us know if they have to postpone it.”
“Can you call for haircuts, too?”
My kids are thinking, hoping, that normalcy will return soon. I am too, kids! I am too!
