Ready.

thanks

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.

  3. We're getting better at pushing and unpushing pause around here. It's nice. And a little bit magical, though not as magical as the sea. :-)

  4. Nah, no need to get to ambitious, the sheets are fine. I love the imagery of opening up to our bookmarks. That's just how it feels.

  6. You may really treasure this "extra" year with Ivy. It is usually better to be oldest than youngest in school. She'll have her driver's license first, etc. Scary isn't it. Terry turned 5 in July and I kept him out an extra year which is usually beneficial for boys. I also sent him through the kindergarten screening both years and saw a dramatic improvement in auditory discrimination and auditory sequential memory the second time through the testing. This is a good time to expose her to the activities she wouldn't be getting in school. Montessori is very good, too.

  8. Whenever I see your beach photos I want to drop it all and jump into the car. We're so close (only 1.5 hours from Florence)and I'm surprised we don't do it more often. One of these days... Thanks for the inspiration.
