School Days

We've officially entered the realm of 'School Days'. Bedtime at 8. Up at 6:30.

Lots of scheduling and rules.

Also lots of fun.

And most importantly, she's loving it. Or maybe she just loves the celebratory ice cream....

What I Did on My Summer Vacation

This night is the the first 'school night' in my home. Mallie will enter Kindergarten at precisely 8:50 tomorrow morning. I'd say, that our summer as such is over.

Not only for that reason in and of itself, but many others.

I started the summer being a stay-at-home-mom to three little babes.

I'm ending the summer being (almost) divorced, full time (plus some) working, and having had so many changes under my belt that my head gets dizzy thinking about it.

So, what did I do with my summer vacation? Well, there were late nights catching fireflies. Dinners in the backyard. Lots of pool days. Lots of boat days. Lots of fun, laughing, smiling, and as much happiness as I could squeeze in and muster. The end of this summer is decidedly better than the beginning.

I say bring on Fall.

Just Catching up....
