As It Should Be

from Chickadee, who began pre-k last week but had her first full day today:
"Mommy, let me tell you a secret!"


(whispering) "I really love school."

Mourning the Loss of Summer

We said good-bye to summer this morning, at 5:30 a.m. when my rude alarm clock started yelling at me. I went back to work today and the kids will go back on the 22nd. Fortunately, we had an awesome last day yesterday with time at the pool and pizza and Olympics in the living room for dinner to celebrate my birthday.

The good news about this year?

We will all be at the same school. Not just the kids. Me too.

Hoping this is a good year!

That Time We Said Good-bye

Three years and one day ago. I'll remember that day (and the day they came back) forever.
