Last week, we had all kinds of plans for this weekend. But then life happened.

I think we all actually needed a couple of days of doing nothing to relax and get ready for a strong start to the new school year.
one year ago this weekend, we were up north at my uncle's cabin. It

tomorrow morning, our house will wake up with a junior in high school
(!!!), a seventh grader, and a first grader. I can't believe that next

again. When I was in high school, someone told me that the older I got,
the faster time would go. I figured it was true, but I just couldn't

savor and appreciate every moment of every day. It doesn't always
happen, but I do appreciate a lot more moments than I used to.
our days of relaxing come to an end with a good night's sleep. And our
new week begins bright and early tomorrow morning with a trip to the Y.
