Our lazy days of summer are over. We have been back in school for 32 days now (the reason why I haven't posted in forever!) and things are crazy around here! I have started classes for my gifted endorsement, Annie started back to ballet, Max is learning how to study for the first time (only because I am making him), and Charlie IS POTTY-TRAINED (insert at least 10 super excited faces here).
We sure do miss our mornings without alarm clocks, lunches by the pool, flexible schedules, and staying up a little later just because we can. Getting back into a routine was harder on some of us than on others. Charlie and I seemed to be hit the hardest. Poor guy. He inherited his mother's need for sleep.
Even though our weekdays are rushed and a bit chaotic, our nights and weekends have been a little calmer.
The hubby's new toy has provided tons of entertainment for us.
In fact, it seems that several of the neighbors have enjoyed the new toy. Now that we have one, there are more opportunities for "racing" in the neighborhood.
I didn't even know it was possible to "burn rubber" on a golf cart! I guess the old saying that boys will be boys doesn't discriminate against age.
All that being said...we miss summer, but are looking forward to cooler weather, pumpkins, mums, candy corn, and a few Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks.
