The Last Hurrah of Summer

*

I'm off to California to visit my family



It's the last hurrah of summer before we get back to school (thank heavens!) and regular work/writing/life schedules (wa-hoo!).



I'll miss the summer sleep ins, but I'm ready to have the kids OUT of the house (does that make me a bad mom? love 'em immensely, but they need some space from each other).



Be back next Monday!!! Wishing all a fantastic week...

I hear you! My kids start back Thursday. I'm so looking forward to it. The summer went by too fast, but I can't wait to have some quiet in the house! Have a great time on your vacation!

Enjoy your vacation, Tess! School doesn't start till 9/7 here in Jersey so I'm thinking, too, of going somewhere with the kids in the next couple of weeks before Labor Day.

Have fun in Cali! :)

Have a great time! Wasn't this the fastest summer ever? My nephew started kindergarten on Monday already.

I hope you have a very nice trip, enjoy yourself.

It's good there is no patrol to 'round-up' mommies who wish to have a bit of space from the kids (mine are all grown) because I would still be in that prison.

I came by just to say hello and see how you’re doing, see you again soon.

Still got 3 weeks here....

Where in CA?? My mom used to live about a hour outside San Fransisco...I'd visit her in the summer...such a pretty area!! Loved doing all the touristy things: Pier 39, Lombard Street, Alcatraz, etc...

You are not a bad mom. You're a normal mom. Hurrah for school! Enjoy your trip!

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

Have you seen the STAPLES commercial?! It's got this dad in the store, singing/dancing "It's the most wonderful time of the year!" Thank God for teachers.

Have fun in Cali.

Thanks for all the well wishes...what a wonderful thing to come home to :)

It was a fun trip. School starts this Thrs - hooray! I honestly think the kids are looking forward to it...they miss their school friends and structure. (I'll keep telling myself that)
