Kevin has registered for classes for the last time. This is a hallmark for us. It comes on the tails of the most stressful week so far. It was a week where we both questioned whether or not this going-back-to-school-with-a-family thing is worth it. I know that ultimately, as long as Kevin doesn’t die of stress, we’ll be glad he did this. It will be worth it in the end. But the sacrifices have taken their toll. And I won’t say it’s been easy.
Every time I think of Kevin never having to register for classes again, I smile. This is the first of the lasts. It is something that gives us renewed energy.
This would be a good time to also mention God’s faithfulness and goodness. We received a series of four letters from the school over the summer, each letter containing a new item of good news. Most of it was good financial news, whether news of a scholarship or our in-state tuition appeal being granted. These were reminders of God’s promises to provide and take care of us.
God has blessed the decision to go back to school. But, did I mention it’s been hard?
