Hm. End of Summer. What?

First of all, where are all my followers?  Should I contact missing persons or something?

Second of all, school starts tomorrow.  My two youngest and the foreign exchange will head off to the wide world of public school.  Is it terrible parenting that I'm looking forward to it?

Maybe.  But then, I see some overly, inappropriate enraged parent berating their kid at the local Wal-Mart for something I think is a trifle...and then I don't feel so bad.  For obvious reasons, it's good Jaycob is going to high school, it's the whole reason he's here.  Part of the American experience.  For the younger two, it's also good.  We have had nothing but positive experiences here at the elementary in town, and there's no alarming reason to pull them out for homeschooling.  Actually, Spencer is dual-enrolling - he'll be taking Industrial Tech and Orchestra at the middle school.

And honestly, my three kids are in need of some space and their "away" time.  And they will all get it.  Then, I start back to work/class on Tuesday, and that'll be my away time.  And hopefully, when we all come back together, we will appreciate what home means a little more.

Have a good week, all.


  1. I'm here, I'm here!!!!

    My followers are gone as well, not sure what the deal is...

    If you are fortunate enough to live in area with excellent public schools, be sure to use them.

  3. I remember one lady saying once that Mother's Day should be celebrated on the first day of school, when a mother can really relax and enjoy some peace and quiet.
