One can always tell when my vacations are over and I return to school. How do they know? I go missing in action. Sorry about that.
I've been in trainings, orientations, and staff meetings for the past two weeks. On top of those fully scheduled days, I've also had to set up my classroom and prepare for the first week. Lucas has been wonderful as he always is every start of the school year. The last few nights he's had toddler duty while I stayed at work until they kicked me out.
This next week should be interesting for all three (or four) of us. On Monday I start my new class of Kindergarteners, Lucas starts his new project and crew at work, and Dean will hopefully finally settle in during his 3rd week at his new daycare. Yes, once again, we all have to figure out how to juggle hectic schedules, family time, and sanity. I'm hoping I don't drop the ball on that middle one.
Interesting baby news:
Ummm...still in there. I know this because he has squirmed his way under my ribcage and into the joints of my hips oh so many times. This one has been kind of fun because I see some things I didn't get to see with Dean. While taking a bath earlier this week, I am pretty sure I saw an elbow come lurching out of my stomach with a seemingly thin piece of my skin stretched over it. Amazing! With Dean my stomach looked more like a wave pool at the local water park.
