70 days to go.

The kids being home is a struggle to readjust to. More for them than for me, but it is no picnic for me either. They both have work to continue throughout the summer to prevent the dreaded summer slide. We are not talking about a full fledged curriculum. Just a few worksheets, writing in a journal, and reading. But you would think that there were spikes on the pencils and the papers were poisoned. None the less it gets done, even if my throat is sore from arguing and my patience is exhausted.

After this Herculean struggle the little lovelies want to go to the pool. Like none of this has been going on for the last two hours. Meanwhile, I am ready for a nap, not hours of playing lifeguard, swim instructor and pack horse at a pool RIGHT NOW.

Instead I will insist on mommy getting 15 minutes on the computer to decompress, make lunch and head to the pool, with an understanding that we are not staying all day, and that there will be reading to each other later while mommy does indeed catch a cat-nap.

Lordy how I missed them. I may be exhausted but September may come too soon.

Totally on the opposite train here! Noah started camp TODAY! Meaning that someone else is teaching him to swim each morning while it is just me and the 1-year old (who actually naps!)during the day. I got more accomplished this morning having only one little one than I have in the last 3 weeks. These 8 weeks are going to rush by, but let me tell you that is 40 naptimes where I can get SO MUCH CRAP DONE! I am super excited and have a list a mile long :)
