We’ve all had a relatively lazy summer. I’ve mostly kept the laundry day routine up, but we’ve all slept in as late as we wanted to most days. I routinely sleep until after 9 am even on weekdays. Most days have included heavy video game playing for the boys. But this has to end, as school starts three weeks from Thursday!
I’ve already got the 2018-2019 calendar set with school holidays. I’ve blocked off the dates for the rest of 2018 and for 2019 that I won’t make photo commitments, in favor of travel or family time. On that front, this mama is trying to be a little more proactive than in previous years– certainly more proactive than I was this first year in photo biz.
We’ve got the backpacks. This year, we are repurposing perfectly good backpacks from previous years. They look brand new, really. I suspect all 3 were Porter’s– he is easy on his things, just like Jared. Oliver is afraid kids will make fun of his old Puppy Dog Pals backpack, so he will be carrying a nondescript backpack just like his brothers.
A blog note: I’ve imported select previous entries from other blogs for continuity’s sake. But really, this is the start of a new blog for most purposes. I’m not anonymous as I intended to be when I first started this blog, but I am not widely publicizing the blog or sharing it on social media. I’m not lying– I’d like to have a following, but I’m unclear exactly what direction this blog will ultimately take. It will probably have more of a diary-like component than I currently intend, which may make the reading tedious. But I like having somewhere to brain dump and it was fun yesterday going back through the years of previous entries. I’m far less caught up in the design-theme-logo issue than in previous blog iterations.
