Can it really be August 25 already? I feel like school just ended. The summer went all too quickly. For my family, it was a total whirlwind.
1st kid off to sleepaway camp for the first time. 7 weeks is a long time to be down a kid.
2nd kid had the time of her life in day camp, again.
Our family (and extended family) traveled to Hawaii for almost two weeks for a family wedding. Hawaii. 2 weeks vacation. Enough said?
Here’s a glimpse of what I’ve woken up to and looked at for the past two weeks.
Any idea how hard it was to say goodbye to that?
Over the summer, my most hated responsibility is applying sunscreen on my kids. Now we’re labeling school supplies, doing vacation laundry, talking about what teachers the kids will have, thinking about making school lunches and setting up schedules are carpools for after-school activities, all of which I’d trade for 7 more weeks of applying sunscreen. And I’d happily apply that sunscreen to multiple kids, even yours, if you could somehow make this happen.
Along the lines of thinking positively, let’s pose a question – what are you most looking forward to this school year? We’ll start the school year off right – leave a comment below (and maybe we’ll choose you to receive a celebratory back-to-school Starbucks gift card).
