Goodbye Summer

This is the last week before school starts on Monday. I love summer because it's the only time of the year when I don't really have to 'pay' for staying up late to do things like read blogs, or actually write in peace. Since my children attend a cyber school, lately we've been receiving their books and supplies in the mail. It's almost like Christmas for my kids, and in a way I'm thankful that they're excited to rip open the boxes in anticipation for the new school year. Perhaps I'm doing something right in that my children are excited to learn again, something they lost in the local school district. Next week we'll be back on a schedule, early bedtimes and homework duty.

But for the next few days, I'll cherish the 'me' time I have left before the insanity begins again.

Tell me the secret of this mysterious thing called "me" time.

I am thoroughly intrigued by homeschooling. It's wonderful that your kids look forward to it! Out of curiousity, do you have them in outside activities so they meet other kids?

Right now my girls are in Girl Scouts. Scarily enough, I'm the leader of Divine's troop. I wasn't sure if she'd want me to be, but there wasn't anyone else to take it at the time (2 years ago), and she's been delighted with it. This year we are considering lessons as well if we can find teachers for their interests.

Kristin, you know when 'me' time around midnight- 3 a.m.! LOL
