It’s Quiet

September 1, 2010

It’s almost TOO quiet around here.  I miss Mr. Gavin.  He’s almost got a full week of school under his belt and things couldn’t be going better.  At least I think.  He’s still all about recess and snack time and I don’t get much else out of him.  Since he only goes half day and the rest of the class goes all day, the teacher sends him quietly out the door usually with a thumbs up.  That’s all the news I get. I suppose if things weren’t going so well I’d be hearing about it.  He did tell Grandma yesterday that one of the little girls at his table looks like a fairy.  I think there’s a bit of a crush developing!

It’s been nice to get back into a routine again.  We all thrive on structure, and while the laziness of summer is nice, it’s been good to have a plan each morning.  We’re out the door by 8:10 to walk (an added bonus that I get some exercise while taking him to school).  Once we’re home, Tate’s usually ready for a nap, and I’ve had a blast hanging out with Liam.  Who, by the way, starts “art school” next Thursday and couldn’t be more excited.  Poor guy.  He longs to be bigger. (He takes his backpack with him EVERY day when we walk Gav to school). 

With Gav at school and Tate napping most of the morning, I have a lot more time to get things done.  I thought I’d be excited, but I kind of miss the chaos that 3 boys bring.  I know how extremely important school is for G, but we do really miss him!  With that being said, we all seem to be getting along much better in the afternoons!
