The kids were awake and off to their first day of school this morning like it was no big whoop. As if summer was a freeze frame, someone un-pushed pause, we open up to our bookmarks and life resumes.
Last night we celebrated and gave thanks on our walk, to our first summer living by the sea. This magical place that picked our family and brought us here.
Ivy's not yet five, so she'll start kindergarten next year. Again it's just me and my girl. She might go to Montessori or maybe I'll just keep her here with me. We'll do lots of art-ing and whatever else we can get ourselves into. I might even start checking my email again, and change the sheets, things like that.
