I don’t know about you, but June through August is always a whirlwind at our house. While I love the constant adventure summer vacation affords us, there is also something wonderful and comforting about getting back into the swing of a routine. This month’s “Real Life” blog circle theme is Real Excitement and I’ll be the first one to shout it from the rooftops — Back to school is exciting!

It’s amazing the power of a new backpack, isn’t it?  My son ripped through the Land End box when it arrived from UPS like it was Christmas morning.  I’m personally partial to the excitement a box full of perfectly sharpened pencils brings me. By mid October, we won’t be able to find a single one in our house.  Mark my words.  It’s the simple things. 🙂

A small sampling of the books my daughter tore through over vacation.  Just don’t ask if we worked on any math.  😉

Just so happens to be exactly how I feel when I shower in peace 5 days a week come September!
