Back-to-School Countdown

I'm ready for the boys to return to school.  I love summer and everything that comes along with my favorite season but I crave predictability.  They crave it too, they just don't know it.  I need them to return to being on a schedule.  Also, less brain frying with video games too.  As a working parent it's also just easier and more affordable when they are in school for 8 hours a day.  The juggling of who's got my kids and when and where is exhausting, especially when the husband is traveling, which is about 40% of the time.

Puck is going into 4th grade.  I can hardly believe it.  I get glimpses of what he will be like as a teenager...

Muffin is going into 2nd grade.  We are still dealing with his eye issues but the treatment is working.   He has such a good heart...

We are halfway through our 2 week vacation in our favorite little beach place.  Still hoping that Virginia Beach is someday my home but we've opened up Richmond as an option.  Leaving DC is our top priority.  It's been a great place to grow up but it's so competitive and fast paced.  The traffic is slowly killing me.  I hate it.  I think we could all use a slower pace of life and change is good for the soul.
