For us summer will be over in a few days as the kids go back to school. This year will be different than others as it is the first year my kids will be in different schools, complete with different drop off and pickup times. Also with my second book coming out soon my writing is hitting a new plateau in its journey. I will again have to adjust my schedule to be able to write in the day while kids are in school. I am ready to look forward at the year and see what it will bring.
My eldest is getting ready to start her first year in middle school. This brings with it mixed emotions. I am proud of her as she is starting with all advanced classes. I am also anxious because this will be a big change and the person she is going to be the rest of her life will really begin forming here.
As a dad I am looking at my little girl and seeing a glimpse of the woman she will one day be. It is truly a cocktail of joy and sadness.
She seems excited though so we are going to go ahead and let her grow up...if we have to.
Gabe is in open rebellion of summer ending. It will be his first year without his sister and he is not too happy about it. The fact that it means less time for video games may also factor in.
Although I am sure two weeks in, he will be glad to have his friends and the school library back.
The house is going to be strange and quiet throughout the day.
This summer was spent with fun times, but also a lot of work. Deciding to write and revise and come out with a book in four months took a lot of my time and I feel summer was gone too fast. Still, I look forward to what the year will bring us and can't wait to hear about new friends and experiences.
Anyway, what was you guy's summer like? Can't wait to see you all Tuesday for the release of Ashes. As always have fun and keep writing.
