Today is the first day of school for my kids. Believe it or not, everyone got up and ready without much stress. We could have even been out of the house and hour early if we had needed to. I don’t even think my husband had to bark out his daily time-to-go mantra, “Socks! Shoes! Teeth! Hair!” We even had time for first-day pictures.
Back-to-school also means back-to-blogging. The other day one of the kids asked why I don’t blog anymore. I just stared at her blankly. I wanted to scream, “Isn’t it obvious? I have been busy being Mommy-taxi and you guys have been computer hogs. I haven’t had time!!!” Instead, I calmly replied, “I hope to start blogging more soon.”
Although this vacation from blogging was unplanned, it did have it’s bright side. I am now super-excited to get back into the swing. My blog ideas had gotten a bit blah this Spring. Now I am ready to make a fresh start.
Back to reclaiming my house! Back to working on my faith! Back to becoming a better me for my family! Let’s hope the kids have the same enthusiasm about the start of their school year.
