Summer is almost over :(

I am going to have a really hard time getting back into the school schedule. The kids and I have been staying up so late that come Aug 25th I am getting worried our bodies will go into shock being on real time. 
Every summer it is my goal , my passion to de-program my children from all things school and work and so far it has been working out pretty well. I do believe that this summer's deprograming has been quite a success. We all stay up til at least 11 and sleep in sometimes until  11 the next day. This has been one of the greatest things about being able to be home with the kids because we just go on our own time. We eat when we want, sleep when we want , and wake up when we want. It really doesn't get any better.
But- every summer there comes a time right about now that I know have to start reeling in the troops. So last night and tonight it was my goal to get us all back on a better schedule. It didn't go so well. I am going to keep trying. Wish me luck.

Noel one of the things I like best about you is the child in you that you still listen to . . . I wish you would have been my mommy when I was growing and I say that with all sincerity . . .

I wish I could be a mommy like you:) I still struggle to find the child in me:( But I am sad that summer is ending. When are you going to be on campus? Maybe we will be passing each other in the halls;)

tim- thanks to me that is a big compliment and i think you should remind my children of this when they hate me as they get older :)

laura-you are an awesome mom and i think your inner child is closer than you think. i will be on campus in the evenings on tues and thurs and then the other two are online.

Noel- I'm learning so much of how to be a fun mom from you. That sounds like a fun way to spend the summer. I'm bummed it's ending as well as I love the 'summer atmosphere'
