forms after forms....

filling out forms.
three for the middle school.
one for the high school.

of course comes along with that famous list of supplies we must get for the kids.

i still have some from last year, you see. i'd just have to dive into the shelves and locate these items. then check off what we already have. then make a list of what we will need.

maybe my in-laws can go shopping for these things again this year? yeah?

nah, i'm sure we don't really need to stock up on anything. just need to get planners from the schools though.

and 2 more weeks til school starts. can't wait.

What a month.

I know I've been gone too long....and realized, I haven't been here for a while.

So...to bring you up to speed...

What a month.

Where do I even begin? I really do not know.

But, I've had to deal with remembering my daughter, Rachel, when her birthday rolled around. Then 2 days later, it was the anniversary of my mother's passing. So that was tough.

THEN....a wonderful work friend of mine passed away suddenly. It was so sudden, that everyone was in shock. A memorial service will be for next month, after his stepdaughter gets married first.

Hoping to get away from everything, I joined 84 other people to MiBCD's annual deaf retreat. This year we celebrated our 30th Anniversary. It was a great fun-filled weekend, and I truly enjoyed it. 

During the weekend, we received news that Ruth Bruffey, a precious friend of many in the SBCD world passed away. She originally was supposed to be our Praise Leader for the weekend. But when she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer a few months ago, we had to switch to plan B.  It was a very somber moment when we received the news.Her son posted a video about his mother, and I thought it was just so wonderful he took the time out of his grieving to share with us.

So, I'm not sure what I think of August so far.  Personally, I have had a wonderful month, alongside with some sad moments....which is part of life.

How was your month so far?
