Back To School!

1st Day of School! YEAH! I'm jumping for joy! Really, all of us are excited, Mommy is ECSTATIC!!!! Summer was fun, but it's time for school! I am a sucker for the long, lazy days of summer. The pool! The popscicles! The sprinkler in the yard! Vacation! Sleeping in late! Naps! FUN! .....however, the seasons tell us it is time to get back in the swing of a schedule and a BEDTIME!!!! Maybe I am just getting older and tired! Maybe I just need my own time! Maybe I just love Fall just as much as I love Summer?! (can you feel Fall coming? just the little cool breeze in the air? football? chili? sweater weather? can you smell it????)

So, we are off to a great start in school! Emma is an 8th grader at Canyon Jr. High and LOVES her friends :)! Hanna is a 5th grader at Canyon Intermediate School and loves her new teachers and new friends and the new freedom that being out of Elementary School provides. Lily started 1st grade at Crestview Elementary here in Canyon. She got to mainstream into a normal, all-hearing classroom with no interpretor and quite frankly, I'm nervous! It will be a week to week progress for her. We really don't forsee ANY problems, however, it's my job to worry just a little about this little jewel that God gave me! I know, HE loves her more than I could ever love her and has her in the palm of HIS hand! I know! My mind knows, my heart aches! She is fine! Really! She loves her new teacher, loves her desk, loves, LOVES school!!! :) Seth is home with me for another year! He is still at MDO 2 days a week and LOVES that! I love that I get a couple days to do my stuff and all of the other days with my snuggly, wonderful, funny boy! I love school! I love "back to school"! I love the schedules! So, why am I tired already? 6:00am comes quickly! Bedtime for the kids is early...... and mommy is really enjoying her time in the evenings! Soooooo, maybe the trick is a bedtime for mommy? hmmmmmmmmmm............
