Drove down to Santa Rosa Beach, FL for 1 and 1/2 days to pick my daughter up from visiting a friend. Beach was lovely, drive not bad with a book on tape and a Sunday away from the restaurant, priceless.
That leaves one week for school supply shopping, clothes, registration for jazz and ballet classes, and a couple of days at the pool.
Back to school is a great thing for most parents and for me it’s a real breather. It’s a little tough not seeing my daughter as much during the school year, but now she has plenty of homework and after school activities to keep her very busy. She doesn’t bother me with the words, “I’m bored”. When I want to flake out on Saturday morning, she does too.
