It is Monday morning and the first day back to school for my son. He goes to a private school and starts a week earlier than my girls who go to the public high school. I think I am still in shock that my summer is over. It went so fast, but I have to admit “back-to-school” isn’t all bad!
If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers. ~Edgar W. Howe
This quote makes me giggle. It is so true (at least for me)!
I am not sure my son is ready to go back, but getting back to a set schedule is good for him (and for me)! Here is a picture of my little bug the last three years on the first day of school. I can’t believe how much he has grown!
His shoe size has gone up three sizes since this time last year. Wow! He still small for his age, but I am so happy to see some growth! Guatemalan’s tend to be small people so he will always be smaller – but he is SO STRONG! Just ask his wrestling opponents!
I don’t know if you know this about me, but I am a voracious reader. I just wish I had more time to have my nose in a book. This weekend, I decided to “unplug” a bit more and sit down and read. I am telling you this because I am reading such a good book right now, I had to share it with you.
I can’t put it down. Click here to see a summary. I am about half way through and I am just dying to see how it ends. This is a real thriller! I am hoping once school gets going for all my kids, I will have a little more time to read. I usually carry a book with me everywhere I go, so any extra minutes in carpool or waiting in line I can get in a couple pages. I am not a Kindle/Nook convert yet. I love the feel of a real book in my hands. I have received a Kindle from my mom, so never say never.
I have been working on quite a few home projects lately. Can’t wait to show you what I have been up to! See you tomorrow for Teach Me Tuesday!
Hope your life is more Saturday night heaven than Monday morning havoc!
