Back to School

As we wrap up summer and send our kiddos back to school, let’s celebrate with a splash!

shelliGreetings, My Friends!

It’s been a busy summer! We’ve worked on TMOM 2015 Convention in Amarillo; Marcia survived the twins panel; we had a patio party and a girls night out. We’ve also completed our first fundraiser for this fiscal year…a garage sale. The grand finale for the summer will be the pool party at Audrey’s. It has been fun getting to know each of you a little better.

At our board meeting in August, we will discuss fall activities and programs. If there is something you would like to do or a speaker you’re interested in, please let Marcia or me know so we can get it on the agenda. It is important to me and the other board members that the programming be relevant to your needs.

As I am typing this, it is nearly 2 a.m. I am currently fostering a lab puppy, and she does not sleep well at night. Consequently, neither do I. Motherhood is for the young…or at least for people who do not value their sleep as much as I do!! My
sympathies go out to you young moms whose children are still battling sleep.

Soon, many of us and our children will be headed back to school. I think there is nothing better than the “holiday” called The First Day of School. The anticipation of who our teacher or students will be, the new crayons and new school clothes. The excitement on the kids’ faces when they see their new classroom for the first time is like seeing presents under the Christmas tree!

Here’s to new beginnings and a great school year!!
