It's August 19, 2015, and we went back to school today. August 19. Exactly 31 days until the end of summer. Summer is over? Wrong. It's just getting started and we are back to school. This is Ohio. Ohio is dumb.
Anyway, as many of you know, this is the time of year that I post photos of our morning and reflect on the past. I intend to carry on this tradition. You're welcome.
These kids. These kids. What would I do without them? I'd shrivel up and stare into a long tunnel of nothing. I'd travel the world. I'd have no idea what my purpose was. I'd play my guitar so much much. I'd have too many cats. I'd stay up later than 10:00. I'd cry at water parks. I'd rock a bikini.
Motherhood is such a concept. It changes everyday. Every minute. Every second. But it all comes down to this: Without it, I am nothing.
This is a big year for my silly little family. We have built a beautiful home and are about to move into it. This is exciting. This is terrifying. So many things happened in this house. An engagement. A lot of painting and de-manning. A positive pregnancy test. Another one. A third one. Just kidding. A few jobs. Some tense moments. Some unbelievable pizza. Some spinning rooms after nights out (and night in). Some scraped knees. Some weepy eyes (for no reason whatsoever). A lot of hugs. Too much crayon on the walls. It's been a great home. BUT IT'S TIME TO F*CKING GO.
So this is our last set of back to school photos at this house. It was a good morning. The kids didn't really give a sh*t about leaving us, but we gave lots of sh*ts about them taking off. That's how it should be. We are doing something right.
The next time I come back to this blog I will be a miserable, miserable woman. I'll be in the throws of "where did all of this crap come from? Do you really need this shirt from 1984? Whey are there so many cold vapor mist machines? This children's tylenol is hard as a rock. I don't ever remember eating whatever is stuck behind this stove." But if anything, it will make for an interesting read.
