Whew. I have been enjoying my vacation like crazy. I truly needed this time away from work. But I feel like I have been kind of running non-stop the whole time, so far. Not that this was entirely unexpected. I mean, this was a "Get the Kids Back to School" Staycation. And that is always a very involved process...and rather expensive. Did you know a high school yearbook will set you back $75 nowadays? It would be even more than that if you didn't also have your $55 ASB card. Oh well...not really genuinely complaining. It was much worse the one year my three oldest sons were all at the high school. That must have been the year I sold off that one kidney...
Saturday was an especially busy day as Kick Back Dude and Princess Diva threw a combined birthday party for the babies, as their birthdays are only about three weeks apart.
Love Bug turned 2 August 10 and Little Prince will be 1 August 29.
That was a lot of fun, but it made for a really action packed day. Plus, that evening I got a last minute phone call from KBD and PD. They were having a little date to go see Inglourious Basterds and they kindly invited me along. I guess I was the chaperon, although I think I am way too late there. :-) In any case, I was so happy to be invited as I really wanted to see that movie. It seems to be inspiring lots of discussion...but you know me, I am no movie reviewer. I will just say that I found it quite thrilling. Prime Tarantino goodness.
Anyway, tomorrow is Back to School. After getting them off, my mom and I will have our annual celebratory breakfast. We've done it every year, often with my sister in attendance too, starting when Kick Back Dude entered Kindergarten. For years we dragged the remaining toddlers along with us, still happy to have one or two or how many ever back into school. And all the mommies are out, eating and smiling and talking slightly hysterically. Awesome.
Tomorrow's post? Probably will include a lovely photo of the wearing of the first day of school ensembles. But also, I would like to share with you a little love story. Stay tuned.
