The boys are dealing with separation from their security blankets - AKA, the iPads - beautifully, although one day AJ did race joyfully through the front door, dropping his backpack in the entry way and sprint for the kitchen, waving his arms and hollering happily "iPad! iPad!"
I think I'm going to start doing that.
My job is going well too, I really love being with the kids there. They have their challenges but above everything else, they are just kids, being kids. They are sweet and funny and they do really try to do the right thing, most of the time.
Twas a long summer, but a good one. I like living within the school schedule - I like working, yet being free more or less the same days the kids are. Best of both worlds, as they say.
