The backpacks are packed with fresh school supplies.
The home school cupboard is stocked as well.
The kids are begging for a somewhat stricter schedule.
Ok. That last one was a lie.
It's me that's ready for a schedule. Period. Doesn't even have to be that strict.
I'm ready for bedtimes and chores and boundaries. Because all of those things have seemingly disappeared over the summer. With the nice weather and the changes that came with me working a few nights a week.
I love to swim, as do my kids but where I live, there are not (in my opinion) decent family swimming areas. But, where I grew up?Where I swam 5 out of 7 days a week, during the summer? It's like heaven on earth.
So, I made a phone call to my connection (Grandma still lives out here) and after an hour drive, we were there.
|My little fish (plus a nephew fish) ready for the water!|
The kids absolutely loved the clean water, not having trash floating around them, not having drunk people being stupid around them and it being vacant.
I'm so glad they liked it as I will be bringing back somewhat of a schedule starting next week. It was most likely the last truly fun day for a while.
