Well this coming Monday is the beginning of a new school year in The Burg. The University of Central Missouri begins classes and I begin watching my wee grand girls once again.
Am I ready? Well, it depends what perspective you take. I think I’ll take God’s perspective and just love on them. It’s the best I can give them and me.
This year the oldest – four years old – will be gong to a pre-school, in September, a few days a week. I think she will enjoy that and that means Penny June and I can bond deeper.
I love the transitional period when school begins for all ages. I love driving through campus and seeing the parents carrying refrigerators and boxes and bedding and sad faces trying to look happy when they say good bye to the children. I don’t take pleasure in their conflict but I am excited for the students and sad for the parents. I had many tears when we drove away from our kids. 😦
Our campus here just opened new dorms overlooking the football field and a Starbucks (for those who have yet to experience real coffee) and a Spin Pizza – all open to the public for all to enjoy!
Any of you have university campuses in your town?
What are your experiences?
