The last few weeks have been full of making preparations, gathering school supplies, and winding down the last days of summer, so we all could send off the kids for another year of school.
Then the day came to whisk them off to beat the first bell in their first-day-of-school outfits with new backpacks to encounter another new adventure.
I’m not sure that day who was more scared or excited…me or them.
I know while I will always treasure the time I had with them as babies, I know it’s time for all of us to move to the next stage of our lives as a family, to grow, to expand, and to create the best future for all of us. And as I drove away in my rarely quite car, for the first time in a long time, I finally have a chance to really think about me and what it is I want to be able to do not just with my day, but my future.
