All in a Row

lunchboxes

This morning I packed four lunches and sent all four kids off to school. And the baby angels sang Hallelujah.

Ella started 5th grade. Notice the stripes.

And Lily started 3rd grade. She chose long pants for her first-day outfit, despite the heat.

I was a bad mom and didn’t take pictures of the little kids before they went back to preschool, mostly because I was desperate to just get them out of the car and into their classrooms already.

I had four child-free hours to myself this morning, and it was divine. I read, I dozed, I did some paying work. I can’t wait for Wednesday, when I get to do it all over again.

I love all he personalities express by the bags!

I sure hope that getting moved and the school routine helps diminsh the stress of house selling and shopping!

Sometimes routine can be so...invigorating. Especially after a long summer of chaos (and you had extra chaos this year).
