(John, 6 and Nikolas, 13 - Richmond, VA)
As another summer draws to a close and school time draws near, I can't help but feel a little bit of anticipation I remember feeling as a kid. A mix of excitement and nerves, feeling ready for a fresh start but also mourning the loss of the familiarity of summer. With kids still at home, our days run best when we have some semblance of a routine and having school start seems to jump start us on our way back to our rhythm.
