TODAY IS THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!
A had her last day a week ago, but today G&C finish. It’s not all that earthshatterinig really because they are all going to the camp at the school. But! Starting Monday, we will have two entire weeks of one drop off and pickup, an exciting prelude to the next school year.
(I realized upon reviewing the school calendar that this will be the first time we have just one school schedule to contend with since Annabel was in pre-K and Cameron in ‘baby class’ at the preschool. That was in 2016-17. Then Annabel went to public K, I had Genevieve, and chaos ensued. Not really, but two completely different calendars and locations has been challenging!)
This also means we won’t have to leave the house at 7:25 anymore! It will be more like 7:55 (for camp) and 7:40 (for school). This might not seem like a big deal, but those 20 minutes are gold. I am very excited for slightly slower and less frantic mornings. We can let the kids sleep until 7.
(Well, when they choose to.)
Also, this means Q3 is about to begin which means summer reading for me and a fresh list of goals. Conveniently, I just wrapped up a memoir (Good Apple, which I enjoyed) + am nearing the end of Caste which was long but worthwhile. I’m excited to move to mostly juicy novels for the summer season.
OTHER THINGS I AM EXCITED FOR:
Taking the kids to the brand new local branch of Jeremiah’s Italian Ice (will it be as good as my childhood fave Rita’s?)
Josh and I are both off for 4th of July weekend. We might go to see In the Heights one night. A movie . . . in an actual theater . . seems surreal.
On a related note, I am thinking about dipping a toe back into in-person yoga classes, something I have not done regularly since 2011. We will see.
Starting my Erin Condren Weekly (July) & Simplified Daily (Aug). (PLUS Cultivate. Yes, it’s a lot. But I’m hoping to finally have a stable system for the next 6-12 months.)
