Back to School

This morning went very smoothly as far as first days of school go. Punkin didn't hit the snooze button and was up and dressed in plenty of time. We even had time to watch an episode of SpongeBob before we had to leave.

I'm experiencing a very familiar feeling. This year, school started later in the year than in previous years. Back when I was a kid, this is how it was. My birthday was yesterday, and I vividly remember the first day of school falling like a wet blanket right around my special day. School shopping, hunting down everything on the supply list...and oh yeah, happy birthday!

I did have a nice day yesterday, don't get me wrong. I got to spend the day with most of my favorite people and even got a couple of cool gifts. The feeling I am dealing with is not a bad one, per se. Maybe I am just a little sad to see summer go away. But with that comes the excitement of new beginnings.
