How did the summer go so quickly and do we really need to look at the calendar or do we just look outside? Have you noticed the nights are getting darker earlier, the leaves are starting to turn – ssshhhh. Yep Fall is upon us and with Fall and “Back to School” for the kids. It could be said back to school for the Mom’s too!
I was at a local department store yesterday and saw a lot of Mom’s (and Dad’s) with kids crowding the hallways looking around. Certainly the isle which hosts the new binders, paper and sparkly pens was busy. It was almost like Christmas with the hustle and bustle. Are you ready Mom’s and Dad’s so many things to think about as that first day of school approaches. You have the new first day of school outfit, the supply list for the school supplies (don’t forget the labels). Labels yes they are a great item when you spending so much of your hard-earned monies only to find out your child returns home without his new hat, coat or shoes on. How does a child lose a shoe? I don’t know about that one, but I have seen shoes in the lost in found.
I am heading out today for a trip to the water – yes it is a little drizzly and not the sunniest but we are going to squeeze in every last bit of summer holidays there is. I hope you and your family have had some time to enjoy a little slower pace this summer and are going to find some more sand and surf days to just enjoy each other’s company before the new season ramps up the lives for many of us parents.
Talk soon ~
