We're back to school here.
Well, we're kind of back to school.
It's been a bit of a transition to get back into the swing of things after our lazy summer.
And as much as I was ready for school to be over last May, to just be a mommy and not a teacher too, I am ready to get back into the school routine.
But the thing about home schooling is that besides school there is the whole additional element of life going on in the midst of school.
So on mornings like this, when I was up past 1 am with a baby getting his molars, and utterly unable to sleep, I find myself letting our regular routine lapse just a bit.
It might be 9 and we might just be getting breakfast, we might still be un-showered, in jammies and with teeth un-brushed, it might take us the whole day to get through our school work because teething baby will cause lots of interruptions, but I know it's going to be OK.
There will be things to smile about.
Like tropical drinks and geography at breakfast.
This home schooling life is kicking my booty for sure.
But I wouldn't trade it for the world.
Then there's the stuff the kids are doing.
I hope, oh how I hope, to get to it sometime.
But I can't make any promises.
My plate is so full.
Besides, late nights and tropical drinks in the morning make me sleepy.
