ahhh the school year crushes.....

So we are only a week into the school year, and already my 6th grader is talking about who likes who in school. As I sit there and listen, I am just thinkin' you've got to be kidding me. They are 11-13 year olds. I didn't even have my first boyfriend until I was 14 and then it was only because I felt like I needed to do what my friends were doing. I spoke to a friend the other day who's 7th grader was invited to go out on a "sort of group" date. I couldn't believe it!!! Anyhow, as I said before, please be praying for me and my children this school year, I think we are going to need it? :0)

i'm not into that kinda stuff. but it is all over the place! from what i understand it makes kids feel older, you know "cool". but not in an insulting way or anything you know?
but thats just what i see in it!

What ever happened to the cooties???

Nikki Cox said...

I know your concern! I am so worried that Savy will come home and say " I think - is cute and we r going out" O my what a sad day that will be for me. Just think if u go through it with Brit then it will be easier with the others.
I will pray for u and the school year!
LOVE

Oh Sara
Todd said the ladies at work were already talking about all the "drama" with their kids and it was only the 3rd day of school.

Just one of many reasons why we are homeschooling.
I will pray for your children!

Lizzie, I completely agree with you. I do also realize that crushes are a part of growing up, and experiencing life...
Angela, I still think that Tim has cooties! I am so glad I got my shot!
Nikki, I am not sure if I will ever be ok with all this, no matter how many children we have!
kristina, didn't know you were homeschooling....
Kathy Eden, Thanks so much for your prayers! I really believe that you are praying and this means a great deal to me!!!
