I've been a slacker blogger lately.

I'm sorry! I guess I'm just having trouble adjusting to my new life as a mother of a kindergartner!

Seriously, I've been spoiled. I've been a stay-at-home mom for about four years now, and I was used to getting up and ready when I wanted to. Even on preschool days, we didn't have to be anywhere until 9 o'clock. And now I have to have the kids up, dressed, feed them breakfast, have their hair and teeth combed, snack packed and ready to walk out the door by 7:45! I'm still not used to it. I have to drag myself out of bed in the sixes! Then I have to wake the kids up before seven...even though on the weekends they are up by 6:30! Why do they do this to me?!

After school we come home, have some play time (while I clean up a little around the house, or more often check what's going on with facebook), have lunch, have "rest time" (sadly no one takes naps in our house anymore), then its on to homework then cooking dinner and sometimes's craziness! I feel like every day flies by without me even realizing it!

Anyway, I promise to be better. I have posts in my head about the following things:
more soccer
TWO field trips
Alpha Phi reunion

Thanks for sticking with me. Check back soon for a post that actually has pictures!

I don't know what sleeping in means. I gave birth to the earliest early riser on the planet. We have been hoping that, over time, he would start sleeping in a bit, but 6:00 is always our wake-up time. AAGhghghgh!!

It sounds like you guys are adjusting to the new schedule well. I cannot imagine life (weekends) without naps! I'm going to have a little chat with Elijah and tell him that he can get up at 6:00 for the rest of his life as long as we can keep those wonderful naps....until he's 15! :)

Looking forward to a pic post!!
