The morning hustle and bustle is back but, I must admit, it’s amazing how much easier the “before school routine” gets as the kids get older. Olivia set her alarm last night and was up, had breakfast, got dressed and brushed her hair/teeth AND made her bed while I was in the shower (and I take short showers!). All I did this morning was make the lunches and Olivia even started that process before I could get to the kitchen. All were in good spirits this morning and seemed both nervous and eager to get to school…definitely excited to reconnect with old friends and I’m hoping they all make fun, new friends this year as well. This is a big year for both boys as they are “top dogs” on their campuses…having a 6th and 8th grader means two promotion/graduations at the end of the year! 🙂 My prayer for them both is that they will demonstrate responsibility and leadership in their roles as veterans on campus and enjoy the freedoms and advantages that come with acting responsibly.
So, it’s just me and Rudy this morning…we have a couple in-home appointments for Rudy and then a list of errands to run so hopefully we’ll be too busy to miss the big kids too much. 🙂
I think we’ll need to plan some playdates with Rudy’s gal pal Stella since she’s in the same boat with her big sisters off to school…
Thankful, today, for friendships!!
