The end of August arrives seeminly without warning, and I realize that the world will end if I don't take a photograph (or six) of my children together, and we all try to coordinate schedules around said photo session, which results in one or more of us getting frustrated/irritated. While that is happening, we also try to schedule a family dinner with the three of us + Rob. This year, the kids kicked off the "festivities" with a pre-photo shoot dance party. It was perfect.
Austin started his Senior year last week, and Hope will start her Fifth (and senior) year next week. I delivered Hope to Montreal today, and she's safely back in Halifax with her roommates. Austin is spending the night at his Dad's. I'm taking a deep breath, and enjoying a glass (or two) of malbec.
The next month will be full of work, school, life, house showings, travel, laundry, Project Grad meetings, deadlines, bills, and more. I've been feeling the weight of it all lately. I adore September & all of the order/routine that it brings...but I also know that winter looms.
In the tradition of Meredith & Christina, I may need to just dance it out....
