Our Summer went by in a wink, but you know what? I was actually ready for school to start back this year. I love my kids and I enjoy them being home and spending fun times with them. Yet, the middle kid really really craves the structure of the public school system. He likes to wake up to an alarm, have certain choices for breakfast, eat lunch at exactly 12:05, and finds comfort in his "1. Snack 2. Chores 3. Practice 4. Reading 5. Homework" afternoon chart.
So school is back in session and all is well with the world.
The preteen is excited to show off her new iPhone (Thanks Uncle Jason!), her new chevron patterned clothes, and see all the friends she's missed all Summer long.
I thought Jocelyn would be sad with her big brother and sister gone all day, but we had a great time at the library on Monday, just her and me.
I have a good feeling about this school year :)
