I love that life comes in seasons, even in South Florida, where the weather doesn’t change much. There is always excitement for change, for fresh beginnings. God reminds us of this every morning with a beautiful, new sunrise.
We live our lives in rhythms. When I look at the month of August — especially for parents — a fresh, new, shiny school year is coming. There is excitement (hopefully) over all the new things: new clothes, new supplies, new classrooms, new classes. This fresh start is such a great opportunity to work on new habits, new rhythms in our homes.
Take the temperature
We have the chance, as we look toward the new school year, to take the temperature of the family. What worked last year, what could be improved upon and where there any outright fails? Reflecting then processing together as spouses is a great way to stay on the same page in goal setting.
