Happy Sparking

My kids started back on August 11 (we have longer holiday vacations here, shorter summers, so we start earlier). It is always nice to get them back into a routine. I love my darlings, but having them both together all the time (ages 13 & 7) is annoying because they are constantly finding ways to irritate each other (and ME!).

Of course, back to school for them means back to work for me (I teach), so that's a bit of a drag. Oh well, you can't have it both ways!

This school year was the first in 15 that I don't have a child in school. My baby just started college.

No school age kids anymore. Grandkids are being home schooled for the first year so my daughter is now busier than ever.

hmmmm... we are a home schooling family so "back in school" means back to school for me too. I graduated my twins this past June and now only have one to do school with. I am looking forward to working with just one child, but I'm not glad that vacation is done. I had so much I wanted to do this summer!

I have two inactive blogs. When I get active with them again, I'll post my links. For now am just blogging here on Spark People.
