First Day Back

Happy August 29th, which also happens to be the first day of school for both of my kiddos!  We are sad to have the slow mornings, idle summer days, late bedtimes, and fun vacation memories behind us, but it will be good to get back to some resemblance of a structured daily routine.

This school year marks the beginning of when my boys officially go to school on different campuses until they reach high school together.  It will definitely be a year of transition in our household, especially logistically.  My youngest is off to tackle third grade, and my oldest starts sixth grade at the middle school campus.  To capture this special time in our family, I wanted to share a little poem that I wrote to them as we kick off the school year...

For those of you who also have school-aged children, here's wishing them a year filled with wonderful experiences and positive growth!

I'll be back with the usual design-related postings this week, including the design plan for the kitchen wall.
