(This is a guest post from @JennyAcuff.)
I don’t guest post a lot on Jon’s blogs. (I have a different dream I’m working on right now.)
But occasionally I do, and in this particular case, I need to make a confession.
As I write this, our school district has not announced whether our kids will go to school today (Tuesday). Other counties have. Other districts are closed to Wednesday. Do you know why ours is still open?
The power of prayer.
I know, I know, I’m a horrible mom. But hear me out for a second.
We are on day 15 of Christmas vacation. We have spent hours and hours in the same car driving about the Southeast. We are arguing about anything that dares make eye contact with us. We are now at the stage of parenting called “I love my kids, but I’d like them to go to school for a few hours.” Not forever, just a day or two. If they want to cancel school on Friday, go for it. The Acuffs will be back in the swing of things by then.
But as for now, I will hold my prayer vigil that our school district has the fortitude to buck the trend of snow days.
Put a scarf on them. Make them a peanut butter sandwich and release the children back into school!
