I finished preparing all of the children's curriculum today, printed everything out, and organized things for our first day of school. I still would like to print up a little checklist for us to use on a daily basis, but other than that, we are ready for our lessons to begin. It's hard to believe that we have a sixth grader, a fourth grader, and a second grader.
I put away a basket of bath toys that have sat next to the tub in our bathroom since we moved into this house five and a half years ago. The children are now taking fast baths or showers and are not interested in lolling around playing, so it was time to put them away (I have them under the sink for when the cousins visit), but it does feel a little bittersweet. Our babies are growing up. I do have to say that I enjoyed the little tableau I created during my own leisurely bath tonight.
