Hanging Out at the Beach

Trying to get a little sun before we have to go back to school on Thursday.

Jasmine looks upset, but really she is just concentrating.

 If the weather holds, we are driving to the springs a couple of hours away tomorrow. We, however, are involved in a family empowerment program now due to a child venting, so we have to work around that. The program was optional, but new strategies never hurt. Funny because one lady wrote down a couple things we do that she wants to try with her kids. And a couple of time the two ladies looked at each other and whispered, "Why are we here again?" 

I think we are going to have a good time with them, and hopefully the struggling child will find her way. But it all goes back to the choices she made which landed her in teen court which meant she couldn't play Saturday soccer this season as planned. And that was so awful she didn't think she could cope with life. If that is the worst thing that ever happens in her, then she will be blessed.

How many days until school starts? Thursday for us.

Love the picture with both girls smiling. Praying the empowerment thing goes well. School starts here right after labor day.

She is completing her teen court assignments, but with some attitude. The good thing about the program is that it is teens helping teens. (Although she just turned 12)
