It is indeed that time of year again - back to school time.
This year the blooms, and time of year, bring a mixture of emotions for me. I am sad to see the freedom of summer go but not the costs of regular weekly childcare and the heat. I am going to miss my regular 4-day weekends and time spent reading in the sun with a glass of wine.
I am at the same time looking forward to seeing people from school more frequently and getting into a routine. I am looking forward to a cool down to less hot weather. I will be thankful not be be told a zillion times a day that I MUST get into the backyard pool with my daughter (it will be taken down in a few days time).
I am excited for the possibilities that middle school (OMG is he really there already) and 3rd grade bring to my children. I am hoping it will be an amazing year of growth, learning and fun for them both and for us as a family.
