picture me {im}perfectly.the first day back.

well, it happened.
summer is officially over.
i could not believe that we were walking back to school…
and that our summer is finished already!



while the bigs were gone,
i enjoyed many a thought in my head.
i don’t think i’ve been able to do that
all summer long.


it was nice.
it was quiet.
and L and i kept each other company
(he starts in a couple of weeks).



and you know what?
i really, really enjoyed it.
so picture me {im}perfectly because
i am a much better mom
when my children are not glued to my side
every moment of every day.

i am refreshed,
i am happy to see them
and i am ready to hear every tiny detail
of D’s latest inventions
and i am ready to have K tell me every little thing she saw.
i really don’t know how you homeschooling moms do it.


and for some reason,
(i assume i was frantically doing this task)
i chose to write “2nd” on D’s paper and “first on K’s.
go figure.


if you feel so inclined,
link up with a photograph
revealing your {im}perfections.

For we are God’s handiwork,
created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:10

2796. feeling the tiniest bit ahead
2797. being utterly humbled by some forgotten paperwork
2798. the bigs’ smiles as they entered their classrooms
2799. not feeling frantic
2800. not being in a rush
