Every school year is different. And for all of us, 2020 is guaranteed to be one for the record books.
Back to school supplies now include a computer or tablet.
Wifi routers are now more cherished than marble notebooks.
Pajamas are the new uniforms and Zoom calls have taken the place of cafeteria chatter.
2020 will absolutely be a different school year!
Whether our kids will be doing remote only or some form of hybrid learning, we can face the new normal the same way we’ve tackled every other academic year.
We can pray our way through this pandemic.
Why does summer vacation go by so quickly?
When did school supply lists become so elaborate?
And how complicated is my child’s math homework going to be this year?
I mean honestly, at what point does this process become easier?
Just about every parent I know has already started bracing themselves for another school year.
(For those who’ve already started the 2019-20 school year, God-speed. And for those who are in the final weeks of summer vacation, God-speed as well!)
Each school year brings its own unique challenges. Academically and socially our children are facing more pressures today than any other generation.
But one thing that never changes, is God’s great ability to help us and our kids blossom in any and every environment.
