I remember being so worried about Jackson when he started school. He was so upset when Olivia started school because his play partner was now gone, but he quickly embraced all of the extra attention. I wasn't sure if he'd do well but he has pleasantly surprised me. He does well, though he does get frustrated easily and if he isn't perfect at something right away he gets easily discouraged. But he's like that in everything that he does, really. Olivia on the other hand excels at school and I always know that she put forth all of the possible effort that should could have. And she's really good at encouraging Jackson to try a little harder.
Along with school, Olivia has resumed dance, still has her guitar lessons and started volleyball. I couldn't convince Jackson to do any sports this fall but Boy Scouts has started again. A new school year means the PTO has started up again at school, so my to-do list has grown exponentially. I've done a really good job delegating things to others so it could certainly be worse. There are just some things that fall squarely on me and that's OK. I've gotten into a pretty good rhythm of my day so I don't feel like I'm spending an an entire weekend catching up.
I have lots of posts to catch you up on, though. So stay tuned and be patient. Everything feels like actual organized chaos. At least I'm true to name.
