Having me back at work is definitely taking some adjustment on all our part. I think we are doing well though and I have to say that I am really enjoying myself. Teaching preschool is fast-paced and busy but it is also filled with so much fun and joy - how can you not love it?
You know what I miss the most this year? Having some laid back time with the Lil Divas. Now that both are in elementary school our afternoons are filled with not only their extracurricular activities but homework (yes, the dreaded homework) and practicing for weekly spelling tests, etc. Of course, I put my own play to learn spin on it and try to make things fun but it's definitely been harder to have time for our own fun stuff on top of the "must do" school stuff.
I am doing my best to keep things going in a fun and light way here at home but I sure do have many moments when I miss those carefree days that we have now officially left behind. Isn't it hard to watch our babies grow up right before our eyes? I find myself wanting to freeze time, to make it go just a little bit slower because although I know the Lil Divas are still young - it all seems to be going so fast.
So here's what we shared this past week on the blog -
