Schools out! Next step- RV trip

Thanks be God school is out for the summer, fourth grade has come to an end. This hadn’t been the most confident building year for Harrison. Bill and I had monthly meetings with his teachers to check in and see how we could all support him. After Christmas break he would walk up the stairs to class with his head down..this pulled on my mommy heartstrings. Was it personality clashing and having a teacher whom just didn’t understand him? We believe she wanted the best for Harrison and continue to feel supported by his school. She simply wasn’t the right fit. I pray his experiences this year will carry with him throughout his life. Knowing he will encounter so many difference personalities during his walk of life. What he has experienced will help to shape him into the God loving man he will be.  

We are renting a RV July 1-17th to drive from Seattle to Indiana and back. We have no idea how long it will take us to get to Indiana and where we will stop along the way. Full trust in God and control out of my hands. This is going to be an amazing adventure, potholes and all. Even though we have been under the same roof since March 12th. We will be in a smaller living area, 29ft. https://www.outdoorsy.com/rv-rental/mukilteo_wa/2015_thor-motor-coach_four-winds_8624-listing

The road (smooth, bumps, and potholes) ahead is all an adventure!

I plan to at least Instagram a photo each day while we are away..stay tuned.

Advice for the younger Sara...

Always listen to your instincts- you’re going to be give a lot of advice...your momma instincts are the best. 

Ask for help AND then take the help.

Believe those who say they want to help, those I have encountered genuinely want to help me.

Children want to be understood, they have emotions!

Children aren’t broken...they are the best parts of you and your spouse, how we work with their uniqueness is important.

Your children aren’t good or bad, they make good decisions and bad decisions. Stop calling them a good or bad boy/girl. Praise their action(s).

Give yourself Grace...the guilt you’re holding onto will weigh you down.

Don’t be afraid to say NO!!

Let your children learn disappointment at home, before they get out into the world 

Not everything is okay AND that is okay. 

The road ahead is filled with potholes, bumps, curves and straight lines.

Reflections Art

Harrison made a film production, “The King Who Learned Kindness” for the PTA Reflections Art. Way to go Harrison on using your creativity and participating in your first contest. Harrison was so excited when the assistant principal briefly pulled him out of class on Tuesday morning to show Harrison his work displayed in the school lobby. Harrison’s the only student to make a film production so he proudly said, “I am the winner of my category since I am the only one in the category!!!” Oh how I love this boy of mine. God is so good.
