For the past two years, I hosted a prayer brunch on the first day of school. Totally fun. Got a bunch of moms together with our preschoolers and prayed for our kids, their schools and classmates and teachers. And - bonus - ate yummy food together.
This year I realized it wouldn't be the same with my homeschooled kids. So I abandoned the idea as a loss due to this new venture in my family. Today I realized it could work if I just shifted the logistics. Voila! We're meeting at 9:00 p.m. - six of the praying women on our street, and wrapping up by 9:30. Of course we'll include food, but instead of breakfast fare, we'll have cookies and sweet tea.
