Here we are just really getting immersed in the dog days of summer, and we're thinking of school? This past week, yes. I have spent this week completing two tasks. First getting the order for the 2013/2014 school year organized, ordered, and taken to the school. This is always quite an undertaking, but for the most part it is finished.
Also, on Monday, the 15th, our parent letters are due to go out. So I also worked typing up the letter, addresses, and putting together all the paperwork, stuffing the envelopes, and getting them all ready to mail on Monday. Lots of school stuff. The problem with doing all these things? Now I think I have to be in school mode all the time. My head starts thinking of planning, getting names prepared, and the room ready. I have to pull back on those reins and just relax. We still have a little over a month.
I hope that your summer is going well and you are having fun with your little ones.
