Long time gone...oh, it's been a long time, long time! (singing this in my best dixie chicks voice....)
But, yes it's been awhile hasn't it?
Let me see, where have I been? Well, between massive amounts of wedding orders and sunny mornings with the boys, I guess I've just been trying to soak up every single minute. I mentioned before that this is a bit of a transitional time for us, Jack's off to full day kindergarten and Luke will start preschool... and this mama's life as I've known it for the last five and a half years will be really different. Sure, it will only be a couple mornings where the house is empty, well not completely - I'll be here, but that's what it feels like - but I guess it marks a new beginning of mornings spent getting ready, lunch boxes, busy afternoons, and a bit of shuffling around.
So long to our quiet, stay at home afternoons, early morning walks, and breezy schedule.
So, if I'm being honest - I've been a little melancholy. On one side so happy with my beautiful boys and all the light they shine (except for the hours between 4 and 6, known as Crazy Town in our house when I make dinner & the boys chase each other in circles until dad comes home) but, anyway, happy you know? And then, a little sad to see my Jack Bear head out into this great big world called Kindergarten. Because, for five years it's been me & him and of course, Luke joined the party. I built this business to be with them.
And so now, I've been thinking. Missing my own classroom- which seems both like yesterday and a million years ago. Wondering a bit about what it would feel like to be teaching again. Considering how far I want to take it all.... And, I just don't know.
So, I've been reflecting & waiting patiently for some guidance and direction. And in between, trying to really savor these feelings of warmth and joy with my boys at home. It's a glorious summer. And for what happens next We shall see.....
