It’s that hectic time of the year when everyone is in a rush to get school supplies, new clothes and meet up with friends they’ve missed from the summer. My children will start a new school year with lots of anticipation and a bit of anxiety about a new classroom, new teacher(s), possibly a new school and many other uncertainties that fill the first days of school.
For us parents, it’s a hectic time of year too with filling out all those forms with the same information over and over again until we feel like our fingers will fall off. We’ve got to get them back into school routines, early bedtimes and early mornings, time for homework and decide what after school activities we’ll take on this year. The pace is picking up and you have to jump back in or it will sweep you away. So if you’re like this mom remember to take a few minutes to catch your breath every once in awhile and do something nice for yourself. The one thing that I tend to forget as our routines get hectic again is making sure to recharge my batteries so I’m healthy and well to tend to those around me.
So welcome back everyone to a week filled with Open Houses, filling back packs and lunch boxes and trying to squeeze in those last few visits to the pool before it closes for the season!
Hang on it will be another wild ride this year filled with joy, sorrow, challenges, frustrations and all the excitement that comes from raising kids!
