Welcome Back!

in Essential Ramblings

Welcome back to reality — hope it is more ahhh than ouch.  For me it is both, a touch of happy that kids are back to schedules — I’ll admit I gave a small sigh when they hopped onto the bus and the house was quiet…but at the same time I dread the return to homework and schedules.  The weeks off of school now that they are older are oh so delightful with the freedom from daily chores.

Anyway, as you begin to get your schedules set for the month ahead, I urge you to take a peek at the following fun to be had:
