This was my first year to be preparing for the first day of school by myself with my four kids so I was a little nervous about how it would go.
The kids love for me to make “farm waffles”, so I woke up extra early to make those for them. “Farm waffles” are waffles from my special waffle maker that make “farm shapes” like a barn, a cow, a pig, and a chicken. (We wish it had an alpaca shape, but oh well.) The barn (above) is the biggest so I think that’s the one they like best. I use Pioneer Brand Baking Mix – the Buttermilk kind with melted butter in the batter and a dash of vanilla. They are delicious!
The kidlets all got ready on time. Notice that it is so early that the light is on behind them in the house. Why we have to get up so early is hard to understand…
The little ones were so excited for school to start that they ran ahead to go meet the bus. They blurred out of my focus. Whooosh! They were happy for school to start!
I was too….
- until I realized that I would lose my friend, Sleep, with this new schedule.
She and I had gotten so close this summer.
Oh well. Now that the kids are back in school – it’s time to get reacquainted with my friend, Productivity.
