Back to School
The kids started back to school on August 19 - 9th & 11th grades:
You may have noticed above, but the only interesting family development in the last month other than school starting is that Annelise dyed her hair:
I lovelovelove her natural blonde, but if she wants a change, this red is absolutely the best! It’s so much fun, and it’s definitely something she could not have done while she was cheering.
StudioSmile is still fulfilling my heart for others & fitness. I added a Chair Yoga class for people who want a more stationary experience: those stuck at work who just need to stretch, those recovering from injury/surgery/illness - even from Covid with diminished lung capacity & stamina, people of ALL ages & abilities.
So, yeah: life here pretty much consists of the kids doing online school, me teaching StudioSmile, JB going into work, & me walking the dog once or twice a day. But I don’t hate it at all! I don’t feel trapped. I don’t feel deprived. I am actually completely reveling in having no ability to do “all the things.” I rarely take it easy unless I’m forced, and I am loving having the myriad of options (& self-imposed pressure to do them ALL!) off the table!
