Getting Back into the Routine
This past week was Lauren's third week of school and Dominic's first week of school. One or both of the "kids" were around the entire summer. I have to admit, the house has been pretty quiet with the both of them gone during the day. Dominic was in school half-days most of the summer (we feel very fortunate) and he had to catch his bus early, so he was "kind of" in the routine of getting up, getting ready and going to school. Lauren enjoyed sleeping in and staying up late during the summer. She was busy with sports practices and seeing her friends, but she and I did get to spend a lot of one-on-one time with each other :) I'm happy she still likes to hang out with me once in a while! Since I'm used to being by myself during the school year, it usually takes a little time to get into a different routine for the summer. It seems like as soon as I get used to having both of the "kids" around more, then they start school again!
