Back to School
Yes, we did send the boys back to school this Fall..... On August 31, Brennan started the first grade and John Paul began the third. It was incredible to be healthy and to enjoy the traditional back to school moments. Here are some snaps from the yard and the car, heading to school. There is also one of both boys wanting us to leave already!
Our family is blessed that the boys have returned to All Saints for another year. The support from the school and the school community have carried us through many days. Quite literally, we wouldn't have made it through without them. I am also fortunate to have been "adopted" as a project by several parent friends who simply won't let me give up.
Today we are about six weeks into the school year and the boys have settled back into the school routine and are doing well. They are also both playing soccer and flag football. Our after school hours are filled with homework and various sport practices. A little family time finishes the evening just as it is bedtime. Saturdays are spent going from one game to another. I am relishing the routine, the mundane, and the simple continuity that I mostly can participate in. It is what I have been waiting for.
We are proud of both boys and are pleased to know that they are each doing their personal best.
