This will be a two part series because today is Emmeline's first day back to school but Calvin doesn't go back until tomorrow. Back to school is exciting for so many reasons none of the least of which is the fact that it means one less child at home all day. I love my kids to pieces but all day, every day is, well, absolutely exhausting. We both need school so that we can better appreciate the time we have to spend together. Also, I'll be honest, I need it so I don't go insane! It's been a long summer of "I don't know what to do now." "I'm bored." "What book should I read." Hooray for school and homework and play dates and soccer... hooray for back to school! (Remind me I said all this when I'm complaining about all the stuff we have to try to get done.)
Also, Mr. I'm 6 Months Old Now is totally mobile which means our house will be cleansed of everything below the 2 foot wake zone. Look at that devilish grin, it's just saying, "What can I get into next?!"
Oh, and also, also, Shut Up and Run! is hosting a giveaway for $80 from CSN... who couldn't use that? Check it out HERE.
