On Maggie's second day of school she saw a few people that she knew. She didn't tell me about seeing her friends with relief, but with happiness. She feels very secure and comfortable at school.
We went to the bookstore for her books on the second day of school. She couldn't wait until Friday, she had homework to do. When we go to the bookstore, we always have one of the staff help us find the books. It saves so much time, frustration and we get the correct books. The staff all had t-shirts that said "I speak textbook". It was cute and they were easy to spot. Besides the books Maggie also needed a clicker, which looks like a small TV controller that the kids use instead of raising their hands. And she needed safety goggles for chemistry.
We were lucky. All of her books were in stock. A friend of hers was there. She needed a book that had to be ordered from Amazon and the teacher do not give them the ISBN number. So she will not have the book right away and they were not sure that they were ordering the correct book. When I went to school the students could only buy new or used books. Now they can rent books or buy online books. The prices are about $100 and up. Most books are $200 and higher.
Maggie went home and started her homework.August 2013 Bible verse: "But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus - the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God." Acts 20:24
