September... a fresh start

September is always highly anticipated around here (okay maybe just for me) because it means back to routine!!!!  Normal bedtimes, normal meals, schedule, structure, and discipline. I find our family thrives on routine. By the end of summer everyone is getting a bit antsy, and over tired. Burnt out, whether they want to admit it or not.

And this year we had a six year old to get off to Grade 1, and a 2 and three quarter year old to get off to dance school. One was excited, the other less so. I'll let you figure out who is who.

Jake is pictured below as "nervous"- fourth from the left.

At least he's honest.

The good news is the first week of the new routine has passed, and so have the tears. And life is slowly getting its groove back at the Boyd haus!
