The summer honors assignments are done.
Hell week is over for their sport teams.
Constant needs and demands will now occur before 8 am and after 2 pm. The house will stay organized and neat for greater periods of time.
Driving continuously around town between 8 am and 8 pm will slow down now with a few less trips.
Summer ends today according to our school calendar. We visited the doctor, made lunches for the teachers, bought new shoes and enjoyed our friends while making homemade pizzas and pretzels. We drove by the school to see the new class lists and went to summer practices. We ordered dinner in and will go to bed early in preparation for our big day tomorrow.
I am grateful for the time we had together this summer. It was a much more challenging year for me with the kids growing up and doing their own thing and needing me to be more of a chauffeur than a playmate. We still enjoyed each other however with less frequency as there were more demands on their time this summer. I am fully aware that they are becoming more independent and it’s a beautiful thing and challenging too as their adoring mama observes life changing in front of my eyes.
Life is good. I admire each of you and the gifts you each bring to this world. Wishing you all a wonderful new school year, filled with adventure and hard work and friendship, happiness, love and laughter.
xoxo Let the journey continue. We are so lucky! xoxoxoxo
