Peculiar = individual, distinct from all others, unique, special
Yes, here is the required back to school post complete with chalkboards and pics and cute kids. Yes, I cried on the way to school (and yesterday and the day before too). I will MISS them – oh what a summer we have had! It was almost too much fun and I find myself wishing it would start again tomorrow. But it will also be nice to have schedules again and fun activities and less lazy days (did I just say that?)
I have my Gillian home with me watching Strawberry Shortcake. It will be her first day next year and I am FOR SURE not ready for that. Next year at that time, I will be a mess.
I am so proud of my beautiful (handsome!) boys and their emerging giftings, talents and interests. Both of them are uniquely special and I couldn’t love them more.
Here’s to the first day!!!
