The last day of summer break.

(the last summer break day. At least some of us are happy)

Today was the last day of freedom. School begins tomorrow, and that means the house will again be alive at 6:30 am. (OoooOooOoohh)
My goal is be up with the children, make breakfast and pack lunches then smooch them off to "The best school in the Land".
Claire wants me to help her pick out her outfits and give my stamp of approval and my goal with Jane is to fix her hair every morning.

I am not sure if my body feels change, but I am sure achy lately.
It's hard to wake up and move. I wake up, lie in bed look out my window
and tell myself "I can do it" over and over again.
We took the kids bowling today. The last hurrah before school.
We came home and I took a nap which lasted about 4 hours.
That's a long nap.

Then, I made dinner. Garden tomato soup.
We sat down.
The children ate one bite then gave me the classic "yuck" face.
Mr. Nielson took a bite and smiled out the side of his mouth.
The dinner was awful. Even I didn't dare take a bite.
Its not that I am that bad of a cook, its just I didn't give it my all,
and I substituted some food for other ingredients.
Never do that.
Then I told the children to pretend like we were really poor
and I used everything we had in the cupboards.
Then I told them that should make it taste better.
Not so much.

Then I painted the girls fingernails instead.
Claire= ruby red
Jane= neon pink.

Tomorrow I will post the Back to School Feast photos. I am really excited to share.
