The Box Children

We're going on almost two weeks of congestion and coughing. Luckily moods and appetites are hanging in there, so I'm not too worried. But, it has put a little damper on our last few days of summer...

I go back to work (part-time) on Tuesday and the girls start school on the 15th. To say I am freaking out would be an understatement. I am, however, looking forward to 6 hours a week kid-free. I think I might get back to the gym! I haven't worked out for 4 years!

They look like they are truely enjoying their last few days!! I just know they are gonna love school, their so social and open to new things. It's hard on you but how you've raised them has made it a lot easier for them!! Enjoy your remaining days till back to the old grind. Luv Liz

I visit here every so often, and I am not sure I have commented before.

I just wanted to tell you how much I have appreciated your journey.

Thank you for sharing it with us.

You are good with photography. Your children are very photogenic too. Hope they feel better soon :)

Well, if you enjoy your work time that much, you can close the boxes and post those gorgeous girls this way. We'll gladly take those two wonderful little munchkins. Seriously - enjoy.

The word school freaks me out and I still have a year before I have to really worry about it. I'm sure they are going to do great! Hope they get to feeling better soon..

You may not have been to the gym, but I'm sure you've done a lot of workouts helping your girls get as many life experiences as possible! Truly, you amaze me. I am so glad that you will have some time to yourself!

as a preschool teacher of some terrific children (with special needs) i'm sure the school experience will be wonderful for holland and eden, and will probably tear your heart out the first few days. they're going to LOVE school -- and you'll love all the YOU time that you deserve!!!

hope the congestion goes away - thats never any fun. :(

I was just thinking about your girls going off to school...I'm a mother to a 24 weeker who is going to kindergarten on Tuesday and I'm freaking out!!!...even though he's been in some sort of schooling since he was 3 years old. He will now be in a 'typical' class with 'typical' kids. I'm praying it goes well for Holland and Eden as well as for my Ryan.

Aww they are so cute, I remember playing in boxes when I was a kid, so much fun! I'm sure they'll love school, I think it is more adjustment for the adults than the kiddies (my niece just started kindergarten).
