After four days out of town with my family, I spent one day doing laundry, going to the doctor and teaching VBS. Today, I’m trying to get back into our routine. Its difficult. Something has changed. When we left, we were still in the “unbusy summer” mode. Now, we realize that summer is coming to a close soon. Softball season is over. The pools are only open another week or two and school will start in just three weeks!
There is a different feel in the house. The kids are getting on each other’s nerves – and therefore, mine. I want to go back to our lazy summer style, but I can see we are over that now! Our family needs to get some structure back. The kids need to stick to their morning and evening routines. I need to stick to mine. We need to schedule some day trips and activities. This will get us ready for the school year that is fast approaching.
I’m not going to lie. I am not looking forward to the end of summer. I like the easy pace of it. But, I can see some areas of the house that are being neglected and I really need a hairstyle besides a ponytail!
So, I guess getting back into our routine now means making a new one. I’ll work on that….
Is your routine changing? Are you ready for the school year to start?
