My Town Monday

Summer break is rapidly coming to an end, and it's a bitter/sweet for me! I am getting really tired of my kids bickering all the time, so it will be nice to get them back to school and into a fresh new routine again. But part of me doesn't want the relaxing feeling of summer to end. I love having my kids safe at home. School will sure be nice though! I'm ready.
