Here it is almost midnight and I'm still getting things ready for tomorrow . I'm so excited for the kids. They start a new school and all the excitement of something new is what I'm feeling. I have big plans for our morning routines, our extra curricular routines, their lunches, their snacks, my role as a room mom. With all these thoughts, it's no wonder it's so late.
I'm a little bummed I took a hiatus over the last two days from blogging. And to be honest, it was unintentional. Friday I had my sister's kids with mine and planned to get some work done here at the house including blogging; however, two of her boys had a scooter accident which left the youngest one with a split ear. Translation? Five stitches to the left ear. Thank the Lord my neighbor is a nurse. I could feel myself getting queasy just looking at his ear so I had my neighbor look at it to tell me what to do. So, I ended up loading up five kids to take my nephew to meet my brother-in-law at the local ER. No time for blogging. On Saturday for some reason my main focus was organizing my pantry then a birthday party topped off with a family gathering. The family gathering was so much fun. I believe I have the funniest family on the planet! Again, no blogging that night.
I know I should be in bed but am pretty sure I will be up all night with the excitement of a new school year starting. I realize this giddiness is a little trivial but I remember this feeling every year: when I was in school, college, when I taught school, and now that my kids are in school. I love that part of the movie "You've Got Mail" when Meg Ryan says she loves a bouquet of pencils. I feel the same way:)
Now I must go and pack my kiddies snacks:) Have a great school year!
