it's here! whether we're ready for it or not.
back to routine. and i'm excited about it! though my little man is too young for school just yet, we're back into organization in high hear. and you know what? we've missed the routine. lately he's been just so ready for a change. so a change it is!
:: he's starting timbits soccer! soo cute!!!
:: we'll do swimming lessons again
:: he'll learn how to write his name without the computer's keypad ;)
:: we'll join a library book reading club
:: meal planning will not be forgotten
:: much much knitting will be done, and taught
:: hopefully nook. will make a first appearance at a christmas market!
:: regular play dates are a must
:: starting strong start!
for those of you unfamiliar with strong start bc, it's an early learning program that provides school-based early learning activities for children aged from birth to five years old. it's what i'm going to do with the little man before starting preschool next fall. (!!!)
so yes. we have many plans and goals. and the above lists only a few. september has always seemed like a good time to "start fresh" ya know? even though it's not the beginning of a calendar year, it's a beginning of sorts. and well, i love fall :) the hubs is off to sea again in a bit.. and i find i need routine more than ever. it will be good though. we're (kind of) ready for it.
we won't always have it down but it's good to have goals... and i feel good about this year :)
how about you? do you have little ones going on their very first day of school? how do you prepare for the big changes in routine? do you put out a list of goals? fun things to try in the new school year? are you excited about this change of pace? i'd love to hear your thoughts! let's chat. coffee is on!
