We are officially into our new schedule and I am trying my best to adjust. Things are hectic now but should settle down in a week or so. My boys are adjusting to their school schedule and I am trying to get into a groove too. Simple things like figuring out when to leave for carpool, what I need to have ready for each day's activities is a pain at the moment but will soon become old hat.
Tonight we are skipping our typical movie night activity and will go to Jake's new school and tailgate a bit before we watch the football game. They will have food and such there so I get a break from cooking tonight. I certainly won't complain about that.
Jake has his first mixer today after school so we will meet him there before the game. I have to admit that I am having to really work to keep calm and not stress out about all this extra freedom he is getting. I know that middle school is a big step...but he still seems little to me. Letting him hang out at school for a couple hours beyond the regular school day isn't a big deal. I know he will be safe but it's still makes me a bit uneasy. My husband just picks on me about it and says that I need to turn off my helicopter blades or something similar.
Speaking of football, Jeb has his first scrimmage game tomorrow morning. This is the start to a busy time of year where we'll spend a good chunk of the weekend at the football field. We will be crazy busy but it's a ton of fun!
Ok...time for me to get going. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. If you want to share your weekly totals, leave a comment or link up!
