Back to the books

We started back to school today. The school table (which for the last two weeks has been covered in a deliciously-riotous chaos of desserts and sweets) is once again clean, orderly, and free of distractions. On the one hand, it was very sad to officially conclude the holidays and all of their joys; on the other hand, it's always a bit of a relief to get back to "normal" again. Our school day went very well considering that we have been off for two solid weeks. We were all a little antsy about holding still for that long, but we made it...and it was a relatively painless "back into the routine" day. Now the kids will practice their piano, then enjoy some playtime, and I will do some housework and start another organization project. This is the month that inspires me to clean out and get organized, so I'll squeeze as much of that worthy task in as I can before the month runs out of its inspirational steam!

kind of good to get back into the routine, and kind of sad too.

Glad your first day back went well--although vacation time is fun, I can definitely understand the desire to get back to "normal." :o)
