August 5th. The date of my last post. Where did the time go?
Where did summer go?
We all waited patiently for the dog days of summer but they didn’t materialize until this week.
This week….when everyone’s thoughts now turn to a new school year. It’s now that we get the heat index in the triple digits and no rain. Now, when the pools are closed and back-to-school routines are a priority. Perfect.
Summer was a whirlwind working from home while taking care of Peanut and Twix. We didn’t get nearly as much done as we intended…on any front.
Today, we ushered Peanut off to her first day of Kindergarten! The Investigator, Twix and I escorted her to *big school*. Peanut’s days leading up to today were filled with hesitation and a more than a little anxiety. But as she walked into the classroom, there were no tears, no clinging and no hesitation. Mama hugged and kissed her firstborn, and we quietly made our exit as she settled in to begin this new chapter in her life.
And, as I sit here in the office while Twix naps, the house is eerily quiet.
And I’m hoping now that I hopefully have some extra time, my muse will return…along with the motivation to start straightening up and re-organizing everything. You know, it’s hard to keep a house straightened up and organized when a five year old is actively deconstructing it right behind you!
