Well, school has started. Saying goodbye to summer is so hard for me. I love throwing our hectic routines out the door for 3 wonderful months. Having hours of quiet mornings to myself. Snuggling extra, late night movies, random trips, drive-in nights….sigh. I could go on and on. The kids are ready for the school year to start. They all seem to have gotten great teachers and as always I prayed for the teachers they would get through out the summer. Tres for the first time since being in high school is taking a “typical class.” It is an elective, Law Studies. He is so excited about the challenge and being allowed to be in an +Inclusive Learning environment. It is what he was used to before we moved to Florida and I am thrilled at his excitement and joy in feeling “normal” again at school.
The History of Us

I wrote a story prompted by my writing group. It's about church, community and racism. Since I published it on my blog I have had so many people reach out with the same shared experience. It's been comforting. Then I found out there is a whole movement of people sharing their stories of leaving church spaces that refuse to respond to racism and injustice. Thank you @thewitnessbcc.

Too close? Just making sure ya'll see these curls. Had my favorite curly girl expert @torrensalicia cut the back of my hair (looser curl pattern) even with the tightly coiled girls at the top. Love the shape that was created. Ima release the desire of length for a fuller style. #curlygirlmethod #natural #innersence
Do not fear. Do not look at the seen but that unseen. Keep your eyes on things above. What is happening in the earth realm is not the end of the story. #kingdomminded #hopeishere #ihearthesoundofvictory #drybonesrattling #elevation
