I love 8:30pm...

Ahhh, one week (give or take a few days) till school starts.
This means so many good things, but for now, at this moment, it means we have started our 8:30pm bedtime routine once again after a LONNNGGG hiatus in the summer.
8:30pm reading time in your room
9:00pm lights out
No more wondering where my time alone has gone - the nights of getting the kids to bed at 10pm, 11pm are over, nights when I would put them to bed AFTER I had already fallen asleep.
No, now is the time to embrace the 8:30pm-10:30pm hours once again. Hours with no kids fighting, giggling, running around and keeping me up. Hours when Chris and I can just vegetate...
I love school.
I love school.
