We've gotten another school year successfully started. With older kids, it's not the hyper excitement I have to drum up anymore; now it's more like reasoning with them to convince them that they love learning and having plenty to do. I believe both kids have settled in pretty good, and it looks to be a good year. My high schoolers are working hard!
Along with their school work comes more work for me, of course. And yesterday, on the first day of school, my husband surprised me by switching me to another computer. It's not a hassle! I love the new setup . . . but it means that my computer life is up in the air right now. Which means that my computer time is taken up by making sure everything is working how I want it to, getting used to a whole new system, and installing programs and stuff like that, leaving little time for blogging. So I am taking a back-to-school new-computer-setup break for a few days, just to get back on my computer feet and keep the rest of life running smoothly. I'll be back!
