An old year ending and a new year beginning - school that is, 7th grade! WHEW!
NOW AN ANNOUNCEMENT - I AM GOING ON A STAY-CATION THIS WEEK - Ole Chatty is whipped from summer vacation.... No worries I am still going to be here. Still on the computer writing and reading emails. And I will be reading YOUR posts and making comments. I just won't post. I hope to start cooking more healthy. Get the GS organized in school. I want to make a book of sayings I have been saying quotes for, and things like that.
I have kept this week open and unplanned. I have to start getting up at 6 and I have been sleeping at least til 8 - so this will be an adjustment. Having to go to bed early too. Not going to do any cleaning. I might take naps or anything else I WANT TO DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay now if you give a little prayer for the grandson - he starts today. Same school. Now here is the good news. He knows all the kids and is not a newbie. He knows the teachers and what they expect. He knows the rules. No chapel clothes this year and they can wear tennis shoes. New principal and new rules - she said the word of the year at school is
Is that not great?
The teacher he had such trouble with homework with - he had three times last year. 3 hours a day. This year it goes down to one.
They have shorten the classes and have added a study hall. Apparently we were not the only ones with too much homework.
So he is happy. They had a swim party Saturday and he had a ball - no fears being the new one.
So the only negative is homework.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS!
A DISCO TALE . . .
Susan - Writing Straight From the Heart - asked in her blog last week if we had witness any miracle lately. We have indeed. And this was a miracle.
Last week daughter, GS, and Disco had gone somewhere. They pulled in the garage. Disco ALWAYS runs right into the house. Well not this time - this time he must have seen a man walking his two BIG dogs in front of our house.
Well he shot out like a bat out of you know where and went out barking and growling. I know he is a bad dog. But the big dog - grabbed him by the neck. The owner looked horrified - like he knew that his dog would hurt Disco. Daughter was out there - GS was almost in the house and left the door open and went out - hubs heard it (I didn't I was upstairs blogging - didn't hear a thing) and he ran out.
The dog had Disco in the air - by his neck - and swinging him back and forth. They were sure he had killed him because he was limp. The owner of the big dog - let one dog go and he rain - and TACKLED his dog that had Disco - he actuality pulled out clumps of hair on his dog - still in our yard - to get him to let go of Disco..
Well Hubs went to get Disco who looked dead - but he was totally physically okay. Shaken and scared, but no blood of broken bones we could see. Now he is still shaken from that experience, but he is okay.
Now you could say that the dog didn't want to hurt him - but we think he did - just the way the owner tackled him.
TO US AND WE WILL NEVER CHANGE OUR HEARTS - this was a miracle. I KNOW GOD PUT HIS ARMS AROUND HIM - because the GS would just have died too. They are so bonded. And they need each other sooooooooooooooooooooo bad. Don't think Andy could have gone to school today if things had turned out differently.
THANK YOU GOD! I don't know what to do about Disco - he is so bad and we love him so much.
Do you think this is true - do you have an unknown story in your life?
