We are home from our 8 day vacation in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.
We are relaxed and refreshed.
My kids bear the reminders of a good vacation (and a lax mommy) sun kissed cheeks and golden locks.
Now it's back to routine, to laundry, to cleaning and eventually back to school.
Monkey waited until his vacation was over to finally break out in his chicken pox, so there will be no school for him this week, and no parks or play dates for the rest of us.
It's kind of a nice reprieve though. One extra week to relish the last of the summer sun and weather. An extra week to get ourselves organized and into the routine of school schedules.
For now though, on to the laundry and the mounds and mounds of it!
