In the good old summertime……I thought life was supposed to be slower, less hectic now that school is out. Wrong! we are so busy I can barely keep track of our social schedule let alone get anything else done. Birthday parties, ballet recital, wedding showers etc. are keeping us VERY busy.
This week Sammy and Norah were both promoted to new Shabbat school classes to coincide with the grade levels in the fall. As always things like this are bittersweet. I am proud of their growth and accomplishments but wistful for the times now past.
I’ve been a bit lax the last few weeks too with so much to do. Tomorrow we are getting back on track, back on schedule and back to some semblance of normality I hope! Back to Sammy reading every day. Back to a reasonable bedtime. Sleepy children are cranky children and mine have been both. We really do so much better with an 8 o’clock bedtime. Its amazing!
We are getting settled into our new place nicely too. It will be so much nicer to be closer to their school in the fall. Already its been wonderful to be closer to school friends. We like our pool. Much closer than before and we have a couple of great parks a very short walking distance away.
Maybe we will still find a couple of lazy days this summer yet.
