School starts in just two days! I'm eager to return to a routine. It's so hard for the girls to have a lot of downtime - and we've had 3+ weeks of it since ESY ended. The weather is perfect for back to school - almost crisp! I hope it lasts awhile, although I'm sure we'll have Indian summer too.

I'm pretty relaxed this year - it's our third year in the district. I've been pretty vocal about how happy I am in this school district. We've had so many moves and changes over the years. It's wonderful to feel like an "old-timer!" I'm finally feeling settled after what seems like a lifetime of upheaval.

I know each of the girls' SPED teachers - I know 2 of the 3 paras (not sure who Bella has yet. Tomorrow is her open house.)

Our new house is so much easier for the buses - remember our other house in this town - where people would blow PAST the bus and almost ram into it as it stopped on that very busy street? Here, I can see the bus chugging up from the breakfast table and walk the kids right out! I'm letting Mia and Gianna walk themselves from the door to the bus, trying to remember they are growing older and are quite capable! Bella? I'm still holding her hand, she's my baby!

It's wonderful to have a "pit-free" stomach. The only butterflies around are in my backyard, not my stomach. Hooray!

I fear the mornings most....
