"Hallelujah, I love You, Love You Lord!"

We're two weeks in and I'm tired. Any other mommas and dads with me?
Summers and vacations are times when I find my rhythm. Who doesn't love relaxing and taking a break from the norm to refresh. But, even so, I love structure. I love knowing what's next, scheduling myself silly until I just fall over at the end of each day. It's part of the reason we plan weekly themes in the summers. It helps me to make a plan. A plan that still allows all of us to sleep in on summer days.
And, that is the reason I'm so tired. Every school day I wake up by 6am. I am NOT an early riser. I'm a sleeper and a dreamer. I'm also a Momma, so I convince myself if I just get up now, I can take a nap once all of the Els are at school/work. That's just me lying to myself. I'll never stop to take a nap. But, the thought is nice.
So, we're off. In the rhythm of school and work and practices and lessons and choirs and teaching and rehearsals and total chaos. We're in our rhythm. We're happy and good, but tired. How are you doing with the kids back in school?

Last year the Els had a performance week and did a song from Aladdin at a family Disney night at our church. This year, the kids picked out their characters and we spent the week rehearsing and preparing for them to perform a few songs from the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie.
Pajamas, velvet jacket and top hat...normal for rehearsals!
