Home alone tonight.
The girls were off to a birthday/farewell party for their friend Miss G today. I’m assuming it went well since they are still there.
It’s hot and I’m tired. 7 weeks of driving special needs kids to camp and home again, with each one way trip taking 2 hours or more for only 4-6 kids, has wiped me out. It was the drive and not the kids that has done me in, the kids were, for the most part, some of the sweetest, funniest kids I’ve ever met.
Thankfully I have a few sort-of days off. Monday I have to go get my bus (from where it has been for maintenance and inspection all summer) for the school year and drive it back up to the town I’m driving in, 70ish miles round trip and Tuesday the girls have dentist appts. and we go to meet Aurelia’s teacher and see her new classroom. She starts 1st grade on Wed and Saebra starts kindergarten on Thursday. I start driving again on Wed so Saeb will be riding with me that day with a stop to visit her classroom and meet her teacher in the middle. They’re both very excited to start school. Saeb got a backpack with her initials from Pat’s parents for her birthday and I have a lovely pile of Tinkerbell fabric to sew up for Re, if I can get one of my 3 sewing machines to work. I have a sock to finish for my second set of SweetPeas, a mermaid for Mel, a crochet sweater that might end up being for the store and a vest that I want to start for me.
Right now I’m going to go splay myself in front of the little AC unit that could in my bedroom and finish my book. If the weather improves a bit I might takes some pics and post tomorrow. Enjoy the end of the summer my darlings – you know you’ll miss it come February. : )
