We've had such a fun summer! In the spring when school was coming to an end I scheduled everything I could and signed the kids up for play groups, swimming lessons, sports, dance, etc... making darn sure we wouldn't be bored. I think I went a little overboard and exhausted myself. Four BUSY kids has sure made for a crazy and fun summer though.
I used to be so sad when it was time for school to start because it meant leaving my kids and arranging babysitters while I taught school. Sometimes I miss it now, but I do absolutely love staying at home with the kids.
That being said, I'm now, among the many moms, ready for school to begin. Ready for an actual "bed time",and not just letting the kids fall asleep in their swimsuits, or carrying them up to bed as they fell asleep during a movie. I'm ready for routines and schedules and homework. The summer always starts off with great intentions for keeping up a schedule but after a couple drive-in movies till 2am, camping trips, concerts and movies that don't begin till dark, swimming all day long, baseball games, etc..... We are left with staying up late, sleeping in, reading only a couple times a week, and skipping on chores. AHHHH!!!
Jadon is going into third grade, Zhoee is in morning kindergarten and I'm going to cherish picking her up from school and still having her home 1/2 a day one more year. Bostyn is going to pre-school 2 mornings a week which he will LOVE. and, as for me, I'm just going to snuggle and play with Nayvi while she is the only one home with me because TIME goes by way too fast.
Happy going back to school everyone!!!!
