And the rest

Since coming back from vacation, we have finally been the true summer people. We have spent more time in pajamas than out of them. We have pieced together meals from what's in the fridge. Hanging out. Chilling. Add a trip to the pool and a play date with Sophia's BFF, and you have our last week.

Sophia and I have both had a hard time getting our sleep rhythm back after vacation. Last night was only the second in a couple of weeks that she was in her own bed all night. Not surprisingly, we all woke with amazing energy and spirit this morning. Thus, my first random post in a while.

We have some back-to-school activities today and tomorrow, then Wednesday, Sophia starts first grade.

The same day, she will have her first violin lesson. She is very excited about it. I was a little hesitant when I heard that we had to have an "interview" before setting up lessons. Fortunately, my fears of a demanding musical environment were unfounded. Sophia will fit right in. Apparently, she's going to be a natural. She, of course, was not at all surprised to hear this. Especially since she told the lady that she currently plays a little bit of all the instruments, except for the triangle and the trombone. Sigh. Confidence is not an issue.

Expect the usual first day of school post on Wednesday. I'm excited and dreading it at the same time.

Gotta go. It's my turn on the Wii.
