Summer is coming to a close and school is back in session. I love summertime with my kids. The projects and vacations that we get to take and just the pure joy of slowing down and snuggling ever morning instead of just on Saturdays. I love that they can stay up late and play hours of hide and go seek. Having 5 kids makes it easy for them to always have someone to play with. As much as I love summer I love the routine of School. I love having to be up at a certain time and at a particular place at a certain time. My kids love a schedule and know what to expect everyday. I love that I can get more accomplished when I have a schedule than just the laziness of summer. I love picking my kids up from school and finding out about their day. I love everything about school time except for planning "whats for lunch".
