It's the last week before Taylor starts back to school. She goes to an "off track" school, only receiving 6 weeks off at summer, but 4 weeks off at Christmas break and 3 weeks off at Spring Break. I wasn't sure we were going to like this schedule, but we're turning out to like it just fine. It's been a good summer, a great summer really. We've made it to beach every single week, swam almost every day and spent long days at home just the 3 or 4 of us. But you know that line in It's Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas where they sing "And mom and dad can hardly wait for school to start again"? Well, yes, I get that now.
For the first time I'm participating in Unstyled Life; a series that Jules writes every week. It's supposed to help you look at the positives in your home surrounding you everyday. Only me would manage to turn something positive into something negative. Teacher, I think I missed the point of the lesson. See guys, I told you I can be negative. Help! And of course Jules' post last week talks about slowing summer down, forcing it to stop. I swear I love my kids :) Maybe I'll redeem myself with my Thoughts of the Week post tomorrow.
