As much as I would live to write about the cooler temps and colorful foliage we will encounter on our Fall Break getaway…I can’t! One reason is the fact that although the temperatures are cooler…they are not as cool as I would like them to be. The second is with a lack of seasonal change the color is lessened…Wow! I will just continue to dream of the vibrant reds and oranges painted throughout the trees just before they shower down to the ground. I do love walking in the woods amongst the crunching leaves on a beautiful Fall Day! Nope…due to the vicious circle of routine, we are home for this the official first School Vacation…Welcome To Fall Break!
I think I will incorporate a bit of Spring Cleaning into the mix this week! My 19 year old began the sorting of his life…(cleaning of his room)…this past week. “If I could just get him to remove the piles, he has created, from his room we would see actual progress.” We still have the normal activities to fill our afternoon with TKD and Basketball practice but the rest of the day with be filled with spontaneous, relaxing, organization! “Doesn’t that sound fun?”
Hubby has work this week and will be off as usual on Wednesday. The good news is that I am also off Wednesday…well there is no church activities due to the school break…so no choir or praise team practice. This means I will get to sleep in…till whenever I wake up! “If past experiences are the norm I will be up about 7:30-8:00…Golly Gee!” I will probably be awakened by the colorful crunching leaves as I hike through the welcoming woods on a perfect, picturesque and dreamlike crisp Fall Day!
“Maybe we will go pick apples at one of the many Apple Orchards!”
Have a great day!
Teachers to meet, classes to find.
Retracing the steps left behind.
Four days left, back to the grind.
Time to bring order to the mind.
Summer’s still here, for goodness sake.
I wish I was going to the lake.
Early to bed, and early I wake,
To catch the school bus I have to take.
Pencils and pens, paper all lined.
New shoes for the stairs I will climb.
Notebooks and folders, paper will bind.
Here are the forms for you to sign!
This can’t be real! See the date!
It is time for more memories to make.
Mom just smiles, “Don’t be late!”
“Back to School…You’ve Made a Mistake!”
This was based on some of the phrases my soon to be 6th Grader has said since yesterday. School starts August 1st…Wednesday and that is four days away. He really has mixed feelings about school starting. Can you see that in these thoughts? We met the teachers yesterday and the topic was the same among the parents and kids….”It seems early this year!”…”Can I go see my friends?”…these questions could be heard all around us. The good news is that we will have a week off in September so the first official countdown has begun. “Sorry…I still tend to think like a teacher.”
When do your kids start school? Are you ready for what the new year will bring?
I am glad I only have one going to school…which means only one stack of forms to sign. Yes…yes…yes! I hope you enjoy this end of Summer with your family….Have a great day!
