Getting Back to it

Up until a week or so ago, I was not ready for my kids to go back to school. Then, the fighting began. Mainly 2 of my kids were to blame and I was ready to ship them off. The day before school we found out that Rory was moved into the class where here friends are and that made us super happy. There was no point in starting over again.
Even though Simmy's friends are in the other class too, he is oober excited about his teacher.  She seems amazing.
To kick off the new year and to see what my backyard can do, we had a Back to School Party with Otter Pops, popcorn, music, trampoline, bounce house, Water Kickball, Sticker Tag, sprinklers, and best of all FRIENDS! 30 kids and 9 moms not including my fam. It was a scorcher that day and the moms hung out in the shade while the kids played- except me. I played! I say my hard did pretty darn well.

Oh my! You have no idea how badly I want to be your neighbor. The mancub needs to know Michael. I want to play a game with Rory, read a book with Simi, talk politics with Josh, and chase you through that sprinkler. Well done, Kelly. You are as ever an inspiration.
