This summer went incredibly fast over here at casa de Klipsch. I’m sure you all feel that way as well.
I know it’s not what I’m “supposed” to say as a mama, but the truth is I really do hate when school starts. In some ways, of course, I’m excited for it. I love how excited they get, I love the routine and schedule school provides and I love coffee in the morning with Zach. But I miss lingering breakfasts with the kids, listening to their adventures on their hikes, movie nights and afternoon swims. They are all at such fun ages (10, 9, 8, 7, 6) I just truly enjoy hanging out with them.
That said, yesterday was their first day of school!
(1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade)
This year was the first year in 4 years that I didn’t have a Kindergartner trotting his/her little body with oversized backpack up the school steps for the first time. It’s also the last year of Trysten’s elementary school days, next year he starts middle school. I tell you this to explain my lack of posts/ status updates and general weepiness yesterday specifically.
Time, stop moving so quickly you fickle, fickle little thing.
Holy moly do you have a beautiful family. Happy new school year!
