We just wrapped up another summer break, and school starts back in 3 days! I can’t believe how much time has flown by this summer. We’ve had sports galore, vacations, parties, sleepovers, pool time, cookouts, dance, and so much more to keep us occupied. I’m very proud of how each of you are growing up and I enjoyed spending time with each of you over the summer. I know that the end of summer is always a bummer (Ha! That rhymes!), but it’s important to get back to school and keep learning new things. Aside from the homework, you’ll get to spend more time with your friends and get to know new friends!
There were times this summer when you guys acted a little spoiled, but that only means you expect the best from your mommy and daddy. I want each of you to practice being kind to one another. Even if someone is mean to you at school, be nice to them and show them you love them. This doesn’t mean to let someone continue to be mean to you. Go to your teachers and tell us so that we can help. But, nothing will be gained by being mean in return to someone else.
Even though mommy and daddy appear to be tough on you when it comes to doing chores and helping out around the house, the things we teach you will help you later in life. Look at every opportunity as honoring your father and mother. Did you know that is something God commands us to do? Mommy and I honor our parents, and we want you all to honor us. Both of us were taught from an early age to treat others with respect and love. Don’t ever forget this. The impressions you leave on others today will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Make the impressions the best they possibly can and be a positive light for someone else.
We love you and wish you all a fantastic 4th, 3rd, and 1st grade year!
