The transition to fall was quick and painful in parts, but I think we have made it. Our youngest started Kindergarten and although it wasn’t his first experience with school it was a big step. Our daughter is in third grade now and at a new level of after school commitment. Our leisurely pace came to a screeching halt and we are only now getting our feet back under us.
Although, today we are home instead of at soccer where we were supposed to be. If my boy doesn’t want to go to soccer, than I am not gonna make him. After a little bit of guilt that they are now watching T.V. instead of running around outside on a beautiful day, I am deciding to trust that this quiet afternoon is needed.
I am feeling rooted and grounded right now: working at being in the now. I occasionally return to my resentment and anger that it is work, but like all work after time you improve. I think I am improving. I have cancer vision without the fear right now, and it’s a pretty good place to be. I hope I can stay here for a while.
