It’s the 2nd day of school and a dinner with friends was just what the doctor ordered! With TACOS! Technically I ordered nachos, but you get the gist.
Our school is doing a hybrid schedule meaning, the first part of the alphabet attends the first week, for 4 days. The second half of the alphabet attend the 2nd week. Then the 3rd week we all move to distance learning.
It has gone better than I expected. And honestly, I think I needed to see kids in my building just as much as they needed to see their teachers. But my sweet girl and her best friend are not attending school at the same time. They have been in each other’s class/group since Kindergarten. So this was a first.
So tonight, her momma and I surprised the two of them with a patio dinner on the river. They were so excited to see each other! (It’s been 3 months). Seeing their excitement and joy of being in each other’s presence, reminded me just how much we need community and connection.
You know God did not create us to simply live a life of isolation. He created us for relationship. And tonight we invested in that. Then went and got Gelato!
It was a “sweet” way to end a great evening.
