University! I can't believe we have a child old enough to be in post secondary education. The cool thing is, he is ready and we are ready. Yes, we're going to miss him, but he's only two hours away, so we will get to see him on weekends whenever we want to.
Yesterday, my two highschoolers boarded the bus for their newly added on to and renovated school. (I saw it last week and it's beautiful!)
Beans - grade 9, Peach - grade 11
Peanut - grade 1, Bella - grade 5, Bright Eyes - grade 3, Squirt - grade 7
An hour and five minutes after that, my grade schoolers boarded the bus for their school and the house was silent. Silent except for sighing depressed dogs. Well, Leo anyway. I really should have taken a photo of him because he looked sooooo sad!
I went to the younger girls' school opening assembly and then had a friend over for coffee. After that I began the momentous task of getting this house clean and back in order after the summer's comings and goings. I've told myself to come up for air on occasion, but if you don't hear from me again until Christmas, just assume I was eaten by a dust dragon, or was hospitalized for crushed knees and water bucket hands from scrubbing dirty floors.
Just kidding. I have several things I want to write about yet, so I will hopefully be popping on here a few times over the next few weeks.
