With school out, house is quiet in the mornings

School is officially out! Oh my. Everyone is busy with rearranging their schedules or hiring sitters to continue work routines as previously with little or, in some cases, no change.

It’s nice to be able to have a quiet house in the early morning hours without the hustle and bustle of getting kids awake, fed, dressed, and out the door to the bus stop.

Some of us had to do that twice. But, I’m not complaining.

The kids are playing it ‘freestyle’ until August 1 when classes will resume.

On June 1, the preschoolers had their last day of school and Mrs. Hamilton’s four-year-old group went to the J.C. Park instead of being in a stuffy classroom for three hours.

June 1 was also the Field Day for the Bardstown Primary School. The kindergartners wore their zoo shirts that they’d designed for a field trip earlier in the year. The first grade wore their tie-dye t shirts from their Derby “silks” when they made the broomstick horses.

The second graders wore simple white t-shirts. A recorded message called all students’ homes to inform us of this change from the regular everyday uniform.

On June 4, Mrs. Goatley’s first-grade class attended a showing of “Shrek the Third.” Meanwhile, Mrs. Henson’s sixth-grade class went to the city pool for a swimming party.

The weather has been quite nice despite weather bug predicting thunderstorms to start Thursday and last through the weekend.

However, as I’m writing this up on Friday night, so far we’ve seen gray skies that quickly subsiding to bright sunshine with highs in the 80s to 90s.

The kids were excited on their walk from the bus stop to find that their friend, Amber, has moved back into the subdivision with a family on the block.

On the prayer list this week, eight-year-old Kaylee Greer, who was severely injured in a Junior Drag race accident when she hit the wall while exiting the track on March 31. The injury has a survival rate of 1 in 100. Kaylee has been at Kosair’s Children’s Hospital until about three weeks ago when she was transferred to Frazier Rehabilitation Center in Louisville. Kaylee still needs lots of prayers.

Also on the prayer list: Gerri Burton, Garland Burba, Joyce Downs, Shirley Downs, Carrie Morris (formerly of Cumberland), and her son, Austin Morris.

I guess that covers everyone. Have an awesome summer and may God’s peace be with you.
