I can definitely feel a shift in the atmosphere around here. Registration is next week, and so is August. August--the end of summer and the beginning of the school year. That is so hard for kids to understand, the fact that the school year isn't really the beginning of the actual year. And why should they understand? When you're a kid, time is measured by whether you're in school or not.

Back to that shift I was talking about a few sentences ago...the kids' minds are moving slowly back into school gear--for some it doesn't fully engage until Halloween. They're more restless, more irritable. NoBo is probably the only one who's actually excited about starting school, and why not? Kindergarten's a blast. Too bad first grade's such a shock.

E wasn't sure if she was ready to be back in school or not. And K...she's just glad to be leaving for Florida on Sunday with her best friend. Disney World and lazing on the beach in Daytona are on her agenda. Lucky brat.  And Mighty Mom can't deny that not having to stand in line at the high school to register K is a definie plus. That sucked big time last year.

So it will be Mighty Mom and Foo-Foo at home together. I think it will be fun, and I'm anticipating more time to write and my goal is to get that pesky synopsis done.  Hopefully all will work out.
