Today we went to the wave pool (probably for the last time this year). I picked up some things at the grocery store so I could pack my son’s lunch and I bought him a pair of shoes. We began packing his backpack for tomorrow. He showered and got into bed early. I set my alarm clock. Our summer is over.
I was just thinking about how odd it feels, shopping for school supplies and school clothes for my children, and not going back to school myself. It is the first time in 15 years that I did not shop for my own classroom in August. My son will begin 6th grade on Monday, and I will continue my recovery.
