I sent my baby off to school this morning.
Okay, so our kids are grown and married, but my hubby is a teacher. He had been a principal for the past 19 years, and now he's going back into full-time teaching! Whoohooo!! We're hoping it will be less stress, but time will tell. :-)
It's hard to believe we're into another school year. I blinked and summer was over. I can hardly believe it.
I wanted more watermelon.
Still, there's a part of me that gets excited when this time of year rolls around. We quickly settle back into our normal routine of things, the air turns crisp and I start baking, candles flicker, our dog romps with the grandkids and life is good.
It's the routine thing that I look forward to, I think. Summer is fun but chaotic. I like having routine, daily days where I can actually get to my "to do list"--though I wouldn't trade the summer fun with the family for anything.
So how about you--any plans now that the kids are, or soon will be, back in school? How do things change around your house with the kids back in school--or do they?
