School resumed at our schools this morning. For parents like us who enjoy having our children at home as long as possible, it was a bittersweet day. On the sweet side of the coin, it is wonderful knowing that our children attend school in such a fabulous and safe school system.
For my mother, Donna Lou Elder, it was a sad day. For the first time in 49 years, she didn't need to be at the elementary school by 8:00 to meet and greet the students. She made the decision over the summer that it was time to put her chalk away. My mom had knee surgery done in June. She feared that her knee would not be ready to go back to school. Lori and I kept her busy. We all went out to breakfast and joined the Wichita County Fitness Center. We look forward to many trips to the center together.
Our family would like to welcome the new high school principal and the new school teachers and their families to our county.
