I remember being a kid and being sad to see the summer end and school start again. Now that I'm an adult I'm so excited to watch them go back to school. Hannah's first day back is three weeks from yesterday, and I think that at least so far, she's just as excited to go back as I am to send her. She enjoys having school friends and learning, and I would love to encourage that in her. She's very intelligent and when she really applies herself she does well in most things she tries.
Norah just keeps getting bigger and smarter every day of course too. I think that the one on one time she and I will get while Hannah is in school will be fantastic for her. She's very smart and opinionated, which is frustrating but cool. She knows exactly what she wants, and most of the time has figured out how to get it, or at least get someone to do it for her. Unlike last year where she napped all of Hannah being gone at school, this year she'll be up and about because Hannah is in a morning class, so will go from 8:30 to 11, instead of 12:15 to 2:30.
