After a non-stop summer it feels great to be settling into a new school year. We officially started 2 weeks ago and as we work on updating our old routine to fit our desires for this year we find that my husband's joke about installing a revolving door at the front of the house isn't very funny. Our third day of school found me standing in the living room near the front door from 1:00 to 4:15 (except for the 1/2 hour that I sat on the couch with 1 friend while she waited for Erin to load a disk with wedding pictures for her) literally! One car drove away as another was pulling up, again and again. My husband just stood there shaking his head as I moaned, "this is how we ended last year... I can't start here"!
Out came the tempera paint (the jug I still have from when Cory (25) was a toddler) and Audrey got to work. Everyone who sees it asks me if it's working. It seems to be, though I'm afraid to say so just yet.
