Tomorrow starts our first day back to our homeschool co-op, which means although we homeschool year round, we sort of have had an extended summer with extra beach evenings this September. Now Thursday nights are spent prepping and packing and Fridays are spent at co-op with Friday evening staying put because we will all be exhausted. With this quickening pace, before we blink, it will be Christmas. It's a good busy, but still busy. It prompted me to look back at our vacation days, which I protected intentionally and we really soaked in that pause. So thankful for these memories.
