We did do our share of yarn pom pom creating/painting/making sculptures out of perfume sample boxes, and yes, eating chocolate (man that Millie loves chocolate almost as much as I do), but we also spent the past two days getting the girlies all geared up for their first day of school.
They were so excited (and a little nervous), walking into the building this morning holding hands. Surprisingly, I wasn't melancholy, despite the fact that this morning signaled a whole new era for us, with both girls in elementary school. I was ready for this, ready to streamline our lives a bit... there's just something seemingly easy about one school, one set of friends and volunteer activities and events at said one school. I left the school drop and felt pretty darn buoyant.
And, ok...maybe a little, tiny bit sad. Just a smidge.
I need some chocolate.
