I lied. We’re not starting this week. I just couldn’t let go of summer. I saw all the photos of other children going off to school, and I felt so happy for them and their parents. I miss that a little bit! But, I am also basking in what we did not do this week. For example:
-We did not rush out of the house before 8:00; not even once.
-We did not argue with the kids to go to bed earlier. In fact, right now, Lane and Jack are playing in their bedroom, Felix is watching a monkey show on my phone (he’s nearly asleep), and Bridget and Brian are spending some time at my sister’s house. Sweet.
-We did not make or eat even one packed lunch.
-We did not spend a dime on “back to school” attire.
-We did not fill out any “What I did this summer” questionnaires. Teachers would have been appalled at the answers, anyway.
I think that we will go to the beach tomorrow.
