Does Vacation have to end????

I think I've been in a bit of a post-vacation funk.  It's been two weeks since we returned home and I really just have not felt quite like myself.  No explanation for it really, but just kind of motoring along and feeling as if I am trudging thru each day.  Quite honestly, I feel as if I am in slow motion but everything around me is speeding by.  The kids are back in school and their assorted activities have us doing something everyday.  Our schedule is anything but slow.  I think I may have a sinus infection or maybe it's just seasonal allergies, but it certainly isn't helping my disposition to wake-up with a headache each day.

G is doing well at her new school and seems to like it.  The program is pretty structured but yet has enough flexibility to offer some "extras".  She has joined the American Heritage Girls troop--similar to the Girl Scout program but more Christ centered--and is also participating in a club.  She was very excited to get her first choice in the club selection--stop motion animation.  I'm feeling very "connected".  The teacher and administration are very good at staying in touch via email and notes coming home.  Grade reports are sent out weekly or you can check them independently thru their online system.

First day of school

G and Lollipop doing some "free reading".

K is settling into preschool.  She likes her new teachers--even though she initially insisted she had to go back to her old classroom.  She has one little girl who was in her class from last year and G's cheer coach's son is in her class.  Not that I should have worried about her knowing anyone--she's my social butterfly!

K practicing her cheer moves!
 M and I are trying to settle into our routine when the big girls are at school.  We go to Toddlin' Time once a week and maybe try to also throw a playdate in there somewhere.  It's amazing how quickly that times goes by when it is just she and I.

Look at that smile!

A little sisterly choke---I mean, sisterly love!
