My kids start school in one week.
Their uniforms are in an unwashed heap on the laundry room floor, and I still need to pull some parts of their uniforms out of storage. Fiver still needs sneakers for gym, and they both need to try on their school shoes to check the fit.
In essence, I have many miles to go before they are ready to walk out the door.
So what did I do today?
I let the kids run wild while I reorganized my pantry, watched Olympics replays, and spent way too much time on iTunes.
Obviously I have my priorities straight.
As much as the kids and I are looking forward to getting back into our cozy schedules, I am not ready to let go of summer. I am not ready to send my oldest son to a full day of school. I crumble a little inside when I think of it.
But it's coming whether the uniforms are washed or not, so I have to buckle down and make sure they are ready. Because I don't think I'll ever be.
I'll be back in a few, my friends.
