Finally!


Joy to the world, school is in.

Target isn’t busy anymore and the parks are empty. Oh how I love when everyone goes back to school.

While everyone is getting their kids up early and feeding them breakfast, we are lazing about in our pajammies and watching mindless cartoons. We are reading books and eating pancakes. Maybe we will go to the park or to the library. I don’t know, we will see what we feel like doing.

The day will come when such ease will be gone. Our day will start early and we will have to get moving. Jack will have to get out of his pajamas before 8:00. I will be running around trying to find his stinking homework and then Van and I will walk him to school. It will be a happy day, but so sad all at once. I will miss the simplicity of our little life. But for now, we will continue to color in coloring books and walk to the gas station next door for popsicles and Dots.

I would have to agree that I love the simplicity of life right now before I have kids in school!! And Jack looks just like a Peterson in that picture!!
