Are you back to school? Today marks the beginning of our school year. We’ve done the school supply shopping (does anyone else feel like that’s just a scavenger hunt gone wrong?). Each boy is sporting a new pair of shoes. It’s the beginning.
(a little throw back to our early back to school days and today…we’ve come a long way)
I had to laugh when I read the most recent circulating post by Jen Hatmaker. I’ll admit, a few similar thoughts have crossed my mind in the weeks leading up to this first day. We’ve enjoyed our time together, but the closer this date crept on the calendar, the more I could see it was time. A few more scuffles between brothers, less interest in the swimming pool and other activities that had kept us busy the last couple months. It’s time for catching up with friends, getting to bed a little earlier and finding our routine again. After all, there’s plenty of things to look forward to as fall creeps ever closer. Football season, apple picking, jeans, sweaters….*sigh*…..Yes, I do believe I am ready.
