Hello, West FW! Summer was rather tardy this year so I can only guess that fall will regrettably take its sweet time getting here as well. I am ready for football and TCU tailgating. Go Frogs! But before that I have to get my youngest ready for his junior year. Yikes! It was just yesterday that he was starting first grade at St Paul Lutheran in his chapel uniform. I held his hand and didn’t want to leave him but he made it through the day just fine without me. Now the only thing he needs from me is to buy him new school clothes and keep his lunch account full.  It’s with extreme reluctance that he allows me to take his picture on the first day. Sometimes I have to do it without his knowledge. He’s an amazing kid and I am so incredibly blessed to be his mom.

In this month’s issue we have four celebrities–The Cowboy, The Voice, The Musician and The Mayor–who will share some memories from their days in school. Then Juliet George will tell you about a 10-year-old girl who gave a speech over a 100 years ago at the opening of the Arlington Height’s Public School. We hope you enjoy the many levels of educational stories we have put together this month.

Proverbs 4:13 “Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life.”

See you around town!
