back to school!

 Today was the first day of classes for the boys. 7th grade (middle school!) and 2nd. My goodness, how fast they've grown.

Last year they at least would pose (however silly!) for first day of school pictures. This year I had to beg and plead for some pictures - this year I didn't get not-a-one good picture!

We're back on our 'normal' schedule meaning I'm back to working crazy hours and all the boys are back in school. I hate it (the hours I work) but it's the closest to normal we get - the whole summer was spent not quite getting it together, despite my 'normal' 7-3:30 Mon-Fri work week.

The hardest part is only seeing them for a short while in the mornings on the days I work, then not at all the rest of the day.

The best part is having some time each week with The Husband and the kids in school so I can run errands, or bake and cook, and sometimes even relax!

Now that summer is winding down, Evan is feeling better, and our version of normal has returned I hope to be back in this space more often!

See you soon!
