or they are hiring really young these days. (alas it is probably the former). We have a new superintendent of schools and Sara's school has a new principal. They are both younger than me--by definitely a few years. Yikes! I've seen them both in action and they seem to know what they are doing so I should probably follow the principle "let no one look down on you because of your youth..."

I've hit my stride once more. I somehow lost it over late spring and summer, but I'm definitely feeling back in the grove. I've cooked supper every night this week. That didn't happen much this summer, but that was mainly because it was rare that we were home every night of a week in the summer--we've put about 5,000 miles on the mini-van since the beginning of June. My laundry is caught up and I mopped the floor yesterday. We've got all the backpacks packed and and are in the midst of meeting all of the teachers before the "big day" arrives on Monday. And my kids are right back where they should be--at my kitchen counter endlessly entertaining me.
