Yep , it will happen next Monday morning at 8:30 AM. All of my children will be attending their very first day of school, Jake is 15, Kelly is 9 and Chance is 7. They are so excited about getting school supplies , backpacks, I almost said bookbags, lol , for the first time. My daughter said this is her dream come true. She really wants to be a cheerleader and has already been recruited to play basketball because she is tall.
Today was a wonderful first of another kind. My oldest son, joined the school's football team #48, for now , it was his first time to play with a school group and he was excellent. I even took pictures, i bet he might have been a little embarrased by that. The school is a private school that has small classes so that will help them to fit in better since they have never been.
Of course I am thinking of all the things to say to the teachers about why I kept them out of school and mainly I am going to just be truthful and tell them we were in a cult that didnt approve of sports, or any other activies involved with the school. So far the ones I have talked to seem to be the most understanding , non judgmental people I have met in a long time.
One of the coach's told us that they say a prayer before the game and will do the pledge of alligence, and we said that was great , no problem there.
Right now , my son is passed out in the bed, after 2 hrs of football practice. I am so happy, I had tears in my eyes watching him out on that field, in his uniform. He just smiled at me , a smile that only we know what really means. I am just glad that he has his high school years to have a blast and be normal. The younger ones will also be thankful they are getting a proper education , even thou they are more concerned with lunch, recess, and making friends.
Wild Turkey and I , just can't wait for the first football game, the report cards, the field trips and all the things that make children feel like they are normal and belong. There will be no restrictions on what they can do, Xmas, b/d's, easter egg pictures are all ok. Can you tell I am excited?????
I just hope they don't get expelled,,,,,,,,,,,,, LOL............ Just thought I would pass on another milestone in the Brown family saga, of being just a bit more normal.
