Its the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...

You know that is my favorite commercial with the mom and dad dancing down the aisle at the store picking out back to school supplies and the kids walking slowly, head hung low behind the parents. I have to say I LOVE this time of year. Life just seems to be more in align with what "should be" instead of "come what may". This year is a big one for the Wolslegers. We have one child in each school. Its the only year it will be like this. I can't believe that we have one old enough to be in High School, but alas we do!! It was a fun experience going to register Alexander at the high school. At what point are your kids "too cool" for mom to tag along. (Luckily it was not this year but I expect next year it might begin). Zack probably has it the easiest because he didn't have to change schools this year. Cameron is so excited to be in the big intermediate school and so now he gets to change classes every hour. He loves it. Greyson has some adjustments to make. Although he is at the same school, he's there all alone, which is a first for him. Rylee gets to do joy school this year. She is so excited to "go to school like brothers". I'm just so happy to have some sort of order to our lives. This should mean that we will be on some kind of schedule - I could accomplish so much...I might get my entire house de-cluttered, I might read every book I have on my shelf waiting to be read, I might make cookies everyday after school, I might...I might...I think I might take naps - I think Rylee needs that back in her life - yes afternoon naps are BACK!!! I do have to say that I love that the schools all get out at different times. Its lets me have a few minutes with each child when they get home to hear about their day. I look forward to taking that time with them - I hope I continue to work that into my new "schedule". So watch out - I have great aspirations for the coming months - well at least maybe I can catch up on....my sleep!!
