The Plummer Family Heads Back to School

The Plummers enjoying family time on the windy Oregon coast this summer.
BY SHAWN PLUMMER

The back-to-school season is upon us!

As a father of four I come into it with mixed emotions, leaving behind memorable, summer family time and knowing how full our September calendar already is.


It's a real challenge not to lose focus on family priorities as the busyness of fall activities sets in.


However, there are many firsts that I’m excited about! Seeing our four year old playing her first soccer game, our boys entering their last year of elementary school, and our oldest anticipating a fun year of outdoor education and her first trip to Quebec. Throw rep tryouts for my boys and my trip to Ethiopia into the mix and it’s enough to put my wife over the edge!


But in the midst of all of it, I'm reminded of the true blessing and privilege we have in Canada to enjoy this back to school season. Millions of children in the world don't have the opportunity to get an education, or face significant challenges to get to school. 


I'm so grateful to serve an organization that is working hard to change that!
