Hello friends! Well, summer vacation has come to a screeching halt officially yesterday. The kids are back in school....and that is always bittersweet for me. Of course, it's another clear reminder of the fast paced passing of time. And it's the beginning of checking in with them every evening to make sure papers are done, homework is completed, books are read, activities are attended. That can be exhausting at times. But they are both growing into fine little human beings...and I'm proud of how far they've come...even just over summer vacation. Also, I kind of like the routine of the school year. My favorite part of the day is that little window of time that I have between dropping them off at school, and needing to be at work. The house is all mine (and Luke's) and it's a chance to get a few things done. Or nothing, if I'm lucky enough to have nothing that needs to be done. (ha, yeah right!)
The landscape has changed quite a bit in the shop/studio too. All that wonderful help I had all summer....those girls had to go back to school too, darn it. They were SO great....and they are missed! They prepped so many pieces for me.....I have a mountain of work to do that will keep me busy into the holidays! Thank you, Nicki, Lacey, Emily and Emma!!! Angie and I miss you!!!
We are enjoying LOVELY weather here....temps in the 70's during the day, and nice, chilly nights. Hallelujah! Enjoy your day!!!
