I am so ready.
I am so ready to be done packing lunches every day. To be done spending 3-5 hours every single night driving from one activity to another. I am so ready to be done studying for Spanish tests. To be done with having my dining room look like a one-room school house. To be done with flinging together dinner in 15 minutes at 7:45 at night. I am so ready to be done with signing planners and ICARE sheets every single day.
I am ready. Ready for a bit more unstructured time. Kids in the pool. I even think I am ready for arising daily at 5:30 for swim practice. That time slot doesn't conflict with anything, after all. I am ready for trips to water parks and movies. Sleepovers in the clubhouse.
Check back with me mid-August. I'm sure I'll be done with wet towels, 6 meals a day, OPK, the early mornings, the heat. And be pining away for the structure of the school year.
But for now - I say bring it!
