Transition Time

Summer is slipping away. Part of me is so ready to be done with it but the other part has loved the time off, if you can call it that. We are two weeks out from school beginning and I need every one of those moments to prepare myself. I am sure that this year will prove to be a crazy one with so many various ages, but we will manage! Whether they know it or not, the kiddos are ready for routine. Mostly they are excited about school and fall and the change that each will bring. They are looking forward to changes in weather and the start of fall activities at church.

But we will pack in as much summer as we can these next two weeks, intermingled with practicing getting into a fall routine. This week is HOT and the kids are loving the pool. I am going to take Carlie for a cast re-evaluation on Friday, so hopefully she will get to swim a few more times before we take the pool down. I plan to let the kids enjoy as much summer as they can while I am planning the rest of our school details and canning.

Hope everybody else is enjoying the rest of August! I know some of you are already back to teaching at public school and some of your kids are back in class. I am sure that you are in our thoughts while we are munching on popsicles and lounging in the pool!

After 30+ years of transitioning from summer to school, it is STILL hard for me to do it! You sound like you've got a great attitude about it all!

Our boys start school on the 25th, and Brian and I head back to workshops that week. Summer is a great time!
