Today I Feel Like Writing

I'm afraid to say that Pinterest replaced all my internet addictions the past little while and I haven't even missed the blogging world...until now.  Today, I feel like writing.

I've been hesitant to return to the ol' blog because I feel like I have to play catch up on all that's gone on in my life so far this year and that's way too overwhelming.  I think I can sum up the last 8 months in one word: wevisitedpittsburghandsaltlaketheboysdidgreatinschoolandgotawards-fortheirawesomenessandallthreeofthemarereadingbeyondtheirgrade-

School starts this week for all of my boys. Parker starts 3rd, Reid 1st, and Gray starts all day kindergarten this year. He doesn't turn five until the end of September. The kindergarten cut off is October 1st and his birthday is Septemeber 27th.  I was a little hesitant about him being the youngest kid in school, but he is already reading and his Preschool teachers strongly encouraged it. When it comes down to it, I really feel like he is ready.  So off he goes.

I'd like to say I was jumping for joy at all the free time.  I had big plans when all my kids were in school all day.  I was going to score five stars on every song on Just Dance on my Wii, hire a personal trainer to get the rest of my baby weight off (can I still call it baby weight if I haven't had a baby in 5 years?), catch up on all the TV I've missed the past eight years of my life, and even get a Masters degree.  But as it turns out, I think I'll do something lame like substitute teaching.  Bleh. 

Park and Reid start Wednesday and Gray starts Monday.  If you hear a little cheer on Monday morning, it's just me.  I'll try to keep my celebration under control.
