Back to school time

Ok well school started here last week actually, but Blake starts back to speech at the public school tomorrow. Life gets busy for us now. We now have speech at 12:30 on Mondays and Wednesdays. He goes to preschool on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Not only that, but we should be hearing today or very soon from Blake's soccer coach too. So add to the busy days soccer practice at night and games on Saturdays. The there is the UCF football games too. Yep... fall is our crazy busy time of the year. I love my Google calendar without it I wouldn't know where I was going or supposed to be, when I can and can't schedule things.

Busy is good. I have found that with my guys the more they have going on the better they do, and that is a good thing! The challenge is getting in all those little things that you don't want to do... you know: laundry, cleaning the bathrooms, mopping the floor, all that crazy busy mommy stuff. Guess that's where my goals come into play. When I think about what I need/want to do the night before I can figure out in my head when to do things and what I can put off for the next day.

Speaking of goals... here they are!

Tomorrow's goals:
-- go to the Y with the boys in the morning
-- take Blake to speech at TLE (out local elementary school)
-- menu plan (I have to move grocery day and I'm going to test out Tuesdays this week)
-- strip the beds, wash the sheets, re-make the beds

(check out my sidebar for a poll about my goals)



  1. We start school on the 8th and I am NO where NEAR school mode... I have got to catch it soon!! =) I did go out once and get a few clothes and supplies for my little girl... but I am just not ready!! =)

  2. Yes, Fall is a busy time of year! I used to grocery shop on Tuesdays but I have now moved it to Wednesdays because of the boy's school. We'll see how that works out.

  3. I hear you on busy! I also find that the more I have going the better Ryan is. He is like me! I have quite a busy week here too. My goals are set and sitting in front of me on the computer desk. Thanks for keeping me motivated!

  4. As crazy as it is...we do better with a busy schedule too. Every one stays out of trouble. LOL

  5. Spring is our busy time but fall is closing gainning on it. Since our kids are getting older, school and sports we are going to be busy too!! Good luck!!

  6. I want to get the kids beds stripped and washed too before school Tues. We are in our last week of summer and it is HOT. Enjoy your week.

  7. I know what you mean....once school starts the busy times sets in. So fun for kids to have activities to look forward to.
