I literally spent the entire day yesterday cleaning. A little something I like to call "Back to School Scrubbing" (as in a little more deep than usual). My 4 y/o was sweet to help me with several parts (even things like the toilet!) right up until her little friend came home from kindergarten. There is nothing like the joy that comes with having a fabulously clean house and of course getting to enjoy hanging out with my daughter.

This week I got a call from my kids preschool on the official starting date (yes I realize everyone else has already started, but I'm willing to forgive them because it's a great program). Looks like my kids will be starting in two weeks. It's a bit later than usual but I'm just so happy that they're both so excited about going. We got to meet my sons teachers who came over to visit with us and my daughters teachers will be here around 8:30 this morning. She can't wait!
There was a time this summer I didnt read a book for about 3 weeks. Then when I tried to get back into it I was scrambling for a book that sounded good. Now I have a nice thick stack of to-be-read books on my nightstand and another few coming my way from friends who have read books and want to spread the goodness around. My book life is good!
