It's Coming....

School supply shopping at Target.He had to get diapers and crayons so he could be part of the back to school festivities.












Back to school clothes shopping with M. Five hours, way too many stores. Six year old little girl who loves to shop, need I say more?


My new office at school. Might still be making a few changes to the layout and computer set up once I'm in again.


My new storage closet at school.

Did you pick up on what "IT" is?

It is Back to School.
Fall.

New routines.
So what do we have in store this year?

J really has no changes, his work is the same, busy as ever.

I will be working on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the same school and am excited that both T and M will be there this year. I've also got a couple freelance writing gigs up my sleeve that are not quite ready to be public yet. I've recently partnered with BlogHer Ads which is what I'm sure you've noticed on the right hand side. They will be displaying ads and then below the ads they choose a few blogs nationwide daily to refer people to. Just as a side FYI: I don't know these other bloggers, or what they write about so if you click on the links to their sites, do so with caution.

T will be starting the third grade.

M will be starting the first grade.

H will be spending Tuesdays and Thursdays with babysitter girl, here at home. I'm hoping to do another ECFE class with him, maybe even MOPS and most likely swimming for all three kids.

What I love most about fall is the start of new-ness. The leaves changing and falling. Cool, crisp mornings.

I always find that fall is the time where we end up committing (or overcommitting) ourselves to activities, opportunities and the buzz of life. I recently found this quote (by Oprah, of all people) that is too good not to share.

Before you agree to do anything that might add even the smallest amount of stress to your life, ask yourself. What is my truest intention? -Oprah Winfrey

Good question. For me, the queen of random jobs, this is a good thing to think about.

So how about you, what are you in for this fall? Or what's your favorite thing about fall?

You bring me back in time with this one, Samara. How well I remember being in your shoes, except for the kids being Anne and John! They LOVED going back-to-school shopping with class lists in hand. Can't you just picture my list-maker/checker-off (Anne!)
going at it?

Now, I love watching the kids walking by our front window on their way to school...energy of the new school year detected and noted by the view-ee. They have new clothes and shoes and a fresh
backback. They still like the group of kids they are walking with. (All of the above observations can and will change throughout the course of the school year!)

However, as I am getting older, I find myself wanting to hang on to every day of summer we have left. I'm not sure I'm ready for crisp mornings, leaves falling and windows needing to be shut overnight. Stay tuned...
