And then they came back and we went places and did stuff and saw the family here in Seattle and were generally busy and then this happened:
Ethan's liking his first grade class so far, although he's a little disturbed by the amount of actual schoolwork that they are doing. Vivian likes her teacher and has so far managed to avoid talking to any other children. I believe that is her goal for the first month of school. This does mean that she actually eats her lunch at school though, unlike her brother who is far too busy talking to consume any food.
I'm home now with a long to-do list and a messy house and two big articles that are due in just a few weeks and oh, I'm going to Cancun for the weekend at the end of the month. So far today I've worked on those things absolutely not at all, because I needed to nap and then play on Facebook. Using my time wisely, as always.
They're just going to keep growing up, aren't they? Not entirely ready for this.
