The first day of third grade. And she wouldn’t let me walk her in to the school. She’s “too old” for that. Le sigh.
Well, we made it.
Today was Lucy’s first day back to school. Summer is officially (unofficially?) over at the Crazybananas house. And let me tell you, it was a damn fine summer. I’m almost not ready for it to end, although the beginning of school means fall…and have I mentioned how much I love fall? While I’ve loved our freewheeling summer schedule, it does feel pretty nice to have a little more structure and the ability to complete a task or two, or actually get some work done during the day. From a former full time working mama to you all you work at home parents out there, “I salute you!” It’s not an easy gig, but with the school year comes a little more time to focus, and I’m grateful.
I have spent the last few weeks really thinking about this blog and what I want it to be. Did you know this crazy little online journal is 10 years old?! Ten. Years. Holy crap. That is a long time to be spilling your guts to the Internet. The last year has been challenging, and I want to make sure I find ways to enjoy blogging again. With that realization came plans for a few changes around here, which I’m super pumped to share with you. Thanks for being here and sticking with me through all these wonderfully weird years. You guys are the peanut butter to my jelly!
