Our first day back to school was Tuesday, the day after my birthday. Now, I'm not going to say that having the kids go back was the best birthday present ever... instead I'll just say that it felt like the right time for summer to be over. We packed a lot in to the lazy days of July and August this year and I think I enjoyed it more than any other summer... but now I'm ready for routine, a little fall decorating, and the occasional pumpkin chai.
High school. They both made it. And since volleyball tryouts were yesterday (the first full day back!) I'd say that we're officially into the routine of the new year!
