Fall really is my favourite time of year. I am that basic white girl that loves the leaves turning colour, sweaters and boots, pumpkin spice everything and football season. Everything but Starbucks actually haha fall also means thanksgiving, Halloween and hunting season!! Most importantly, the kids go back to school and I get the house back to myself on my days off. Hell yes!!
Im not going to lie, this school year is a little hard on me, my oldest has started HIGH SCHOOL!! This is brand new territory for me and it’s a horrible reminder that I don’t have many years left with him at home.
To add insult to injury, he went and turned 15 on me last week AND got himself his first girlfriend over the summer. I’m not ready for this haha
Speaking of new journeys, Dylan started Jr High! This is a big move for him as it means he is in a new school and will no longer be in the same building as Robyn.
Hes only 2 days in but from what we hear, jr High is WAY better than elementary, mostly because he gets a sweet locker. Isn’t that what we were all excited about though?
Im thanking my lucky stars the girls are still in elementary so I still have a couple more years to pretend we’re not all getting older. It’s grade 4 for both girls and they both desperately wish they were in the same town so they could be in the same class.
Reegans a super smart girl and usually breezes right through school but she was less than impressed to go back. The only exciting thing about going back for her was the new wardrobe. A girl after my own heart haha
The novelty of school has also worn off for Robyn over the years and she was fuming mad when she found out her and her best friend were in separate classes this year. Thank goodness she had the summer to get over it and it doesn’t seem to be so life ruining now, she really likes her teacher and already came home with homework that she was eager to do as soon as football practice was over.
As sad as I am to see the summer go, I’m always excited for the beginning of fall and to have some organization back in my life, I know it’s going to be absolutely chaotic organization because sports are starting and of course none of my kids are on the same team for anything. I absolutely revel in this time of year, welcome back real life!
