Just three short weeks to readjust from the lazy days of summer. We have got into a nice routine of later bedtimes and lazy slow mornings, with time to decide what to eat for breakfast and what activities to do in the rest of the day. Sometimes, we've been known to stay in our pj's all day! Especially, on one of the many stormy and rainy days we've had this summer.
This year will be a different school routine for us - my daughter is going into first grade, so she knows pretty much what to expect, but my son is starting pre-k. It will be his first time away from familiar faces, although only for a couple of hours, so we'll see how that goes! The preschooler's don't get to ride the bus, so I'll be driving him there and back - but it means a couple hours of quiet time for me! Yay!
The most exciting time for everyone, I think, is getting the list of supplies in the mail - and then it's time to hit the store for the new boxes of crayons, pencils, glue sticks, lunch boxes, backpacks, etc.....What fun!
Even at my age, there's nothing quite like a box full of sharp tipped, colorful crayons!
