First Day of School

Our final day of staying up late, sleeping in, not packing lunches or not having to worry about what to wear has come.  For some reason this summer seemed to speed like no other.  I had so many plans last spring of what we were going to do "this summer".   But as quickly as it came, it has quickly passed.

Tuesday morning came super early (5:45 am).  I quickly remembered my routine like an old friend.  Shuffling kids to wake up and get food shoveled down their throats and out the door on time.  This year was a bit different as My Ben was not among the chaos.  He start college a few weeks prior so he was in full school swing by now.  Now that we have been at our new normal for over a week we got it down like we had being doing this all along.

 then I came home to catch up on a mountain of laundry that was growing up my laundry room door and started thinking of  plans for our "Christmas Break"

Hope everyone had a great first week back at school!
