Well, for the kids. I still have 3 great days before my work year starts. I have lots to share but for now, let's just say that it is totally amazing just how much kids develop in one year. For the first time ever since we had kids, I had the chance to help Hunter pitch and break camp. For the first time ever we had 3 kids playing in the sea and swimming in the pool amounting to total water happiness and beach joy. For the first time ever one week of camping was way too short. Now we will head for 2 weeks or so. Our time at home has been fun too. Lots of friends and family, swimming and playing. Time shared together.
So here's to the 2013 school year - 3 kids in 3 grades will hold its challenges ( hence I have a great calender change this year from my usual one to allow more space for notes) but I am embracing the challenge with open arms. I am holding my breath and praying that the boys will adapt well- in a new school,and separate classes - the first time they will not be together. Here's wishing you the very best for you school year ahead.
