it's my second full week of work since june. it's tough. but it's a sign of things to come.
school starts in less than two weeks. dance in three. high school football is underway. yes folks, fall is almost here.
for some reason, last year, i had a hard time with fall (and the winter and spring that followed). i'm working really hard on getting a good start this year and not letting the end of summer get me down. we have a lot to look forward at our home this year.
hubby has returned to high school football and it looks like it is going to be an amazing season.
big sis is in her last year of elementary school. it sounds like she's getting to compete in 4 dances this year in her dance company (last year she did 3), which is what she was hoping for. she's getting taller and smarter and more grown up every day. it's hard to believe.
and lil' sis is starting kindergarten. yes, i now have two kids in school full time. life is really going to get busy now! she's also starting a dance program where she'll get to do a lot more. she's really excited about that and asks every day when her classes will start. this year will be full of firsts for her. riding the bus, buying lunches at school, learning to read. i cannot wait!
as for me, nothing has changed personally, but i will get to enjoy the changes my family members are experiencing. i'm working out faithfully, reading a lot and dreaming. mostly, this year, i just want to enjoy each day as it comes.
so my promise to myself is not to stress. everything will turn out the way it was meant to. i need to breathe every day. take time to enjoy the girls. support my husband and his new football team. find as much time as possible for fun.
i have a feeling it's going to be a great school year!
