This week is TAKS test week. My precious third grader has been more stressed than she’s been all year. And believe me, it’s been a stressful year for her with the transition from homeschool to public school. There have been physical manifestations of the stress as well as emotional. We’ve been praying and quoting special verses all week. I put a card in her lunch today with Phil. 4:13 written on the bottom. It was one of the first things she mentioned after school today. We’ve always tried to hide God’s Word in their hearts… and she’s needed it this week.
So after school we decided some stress relief was in order. We broke out the sprinkler and popsicles and invited a friend over. Even as tired as she was she ran, giggled, and forgot about the worries of that silly test. Hopefully it will get her through tomorrow, too!
