This week I suddenly find myself the mother of three school-going children! Emma started first grade, and Johnny and Lily are both in preschool. All three kids were placed with teachers who seem to be perfect fits for their personalities, and they are very happy and excited about school so far!
Johnny is so excited to have Lily at school with him this year, and it’s pretty adorable to see them walking hand in hand at drop-off and pick-up!
I feel that the greatest afterschool learning this week is through having a baby in the house again! Anna is learning and growing so quickly, and we are all learning from her at the same time – about patience, love, happiness, gratitude, and more.
Mike was out of town again – even longer than intended, thanks to a Lufthansa strike. We were thrilled when he finally made it home – as captured by Anna’s smiles!
As for me, I’m sleep-deprived and behind on pretty much everything. I’m working on both of those. But I wouldn’t trade sleep or organization for all that I have!
How was your week?
