Back to school, back to reality.

Yesterday the kids went back to school. Everyone woke up in great moods, everything went as smooth as it can in the mornings, I was thrilled to say the least. Fast forward to this morning....let's see, we all went to bed earlier, and yet everyone (except for Travis who is always happy in the morning) was totally dragging, tired, and yep, grumpy! I was so hoping that with the new year was going to come great mornings, but it looks like reality is just this. Life is normal.

I shouldn't be surprised since the kids had 3 extra days of Winter Break because of school being cancelled because of the snow. 2 1/2 weeks of freedom, sleeping in and staying up late had to take its toll. I miss the kids being at home, but at the same time I am glad they are back in school because that means we are getting back to our regular routines. Tyler is the only one who isn't thrilled to be going back to school, but that has more to do with having to get up early again. I asked if he would be glad to be going back to school if classes started at 10, and he begrudgingly said yes. Poor kid is just like me and is a true night owl. Staying up until midnight is pretty normal for me, and there are even times when Chris gets up to go to work at 3 a.m. only to find me still up and working on the torch!
