How’s that song go? “It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” yeah, that one. I know, I know, it’s not Christmas but it is the start of the school year out here in South Dakota. And my son started kindergarten this year. I don’t know who’s happier and more excited–he or I?
What’s really cool is the fact that he’s totally into transformers now. Yeah. That’s right. I’m raising my son right. I’ve introduced him to the awesome that is Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. And today, he told his teacher “I like Transformers because my Daddy introduced me to them.” No lie and no prompting from me.
Not only is my son returning to school but so is my wife. After a few years hiatus from teaching, she is now returning to school to teach part time. This means that my two-year old is in day care (which I think we all needed to tell the truth).
So what does this all mean? Structure!!! Yippee!! This is what someone like me with ADHLAS (Attention Deficit…Hey! Look! A Squirrel!) so needs and to tell the truth craves. I’m so happy to have structure back again. I even was able to hit the gym early this morning for the first time since…well, since summer started. And so now I’m working on getting back in the routine.
It also means that I’m starting to get back in the routine of watching LifeChurch.TV podcasts while I’m on the stationary bike. It means getting back into having that quiet time in my mornings with Bible and coffee.
I so need structure..to tell the truth, I’m shocked my Straterra kept me together this long without that much structure.
What about you? With the school kicking in, with things getting back into a routine, are you looking forward to it or dreading it?
