New School Year!

So excited about the start of a new school year. Caitlyn said to me as she went to bed last night "good-bye summer". I thought about that a lot last night as I was getting ready for bed I remember waiting as a child for each new thing, waiting for the first day of school... waiting for the last day of school...waitning for Christmas....waiting for my birthday. All these exciting days that I looked forward to every year and now my kids are excited about. I wondered how eagerly are we waiting for the most important day. The day that we long for? The day that we will finally see our God face to face.
Last night the kids were getting there stuff ready so that when we get up in the morning we can have a great first day of school and I thought I wonder how many days this excitement is going to last. Probably just one day but it is still exciting to watch them be so excited about the newness of the new year. I know so many times that excitement of waiting for the most important days often fades away. I no longer get excited about birthdays (well at least not mine but I do for the kids) but I am so excited when God somehow reminds me of what I have to look forward to once again. I only hope that the next time I am excited about a day that will last for only a day I can also focus on the day that will not just be a day it will last forever. But for right now only 180 days till the last day of school:)
