I've spent a blissful hour this morning catching up and visiting with old blog friends. I've been gone a long time, I know. But so have some of you, so I know I'm not the only one who had a crazy summer!
Here's the latest from me:
My baby has gone off to kindergarten! Boo hoo! Unlike Firstborn, who mugs for the camera every chance he gets, RB doesn't look too thrilled in this shot (I'm finding it harder and harder to get him to look at the camera and smile at the same time), but rest assured when the bus showed up he was grinning from ear to ear.
I made the mistake of following the bus to school (yeah, I know...) and walking him to his class on the first day, despite the fact that I knew his home tutor/classroom aide would be dutifully waiting there for him. When he realized I wasn't staying for the morning he started crying and carrying on. He put on a pretty great show because by the time I got back to the truck to book it out of there, I was bawling like an idiot. According to reports, the second I was out of sight, he was having the time of his life with all the other kids. Rotten little jerk.
No doubt about it, this place has never been so quiet. I'm hoping it'll give me more time to fix up my falling-down house, craft like there's no tomorrow and blog a little more frequently again. Actually, I have a great story to share about those awful buzz cuts my kids are sporting. There's a reason RB likes to wear a hat...
