As much as I love my routine, getting into a new one can be rough!

1.  Has the new school year started for you and your family?  When?

2.  Have you gotten into the groove of the new year yet?

3.  Are you starting anything brand new this fall, that you haven't done in the years past?

Yes, Tuesday, but only 2 days of school this week.

2.  Have you gotten into the groove of the new year yet?

Getting there but it was only 2 days lol.

3.  Are you starting anything brand new this fall, that you haven't done in the years past?

Since there are no after school busses for sports, our new thing is to car pool to pick the kids up after practice.

1.  Has the new school year started for you and your family?  When? -- Yes, our first day was August-something-or-other .. 20th maybe?

2.  Have you gotten into the groove of the new year yet? -- Yep.  The kids are pretty independent, so there's not much of a groove to get into.

3.  Are you starting anything brand new this fall, that you haven't done in the years past? -- Can't think of anything for me.  Kids have all sorts of new stuff going on.

1.  Has the new school year started for you and your family?  When? Nope. Dd starts in October. I am not going to school this fall. Taking a break.

2.  Have you gotten into the groove of the new year yet? No. here it is still summer. Tomorrow we are having a big party and I have several relatives in from abroad. Once that is all done and everyone has gone home, the new year will start.

3.  Are you starting anything brand new this fall, that you haven't done in the years past? Well, in a way having the party is something new. We don't usually do things like that, except for business. So we are kicking the fall off with a new thing.

1.  Yep, this week

2.  No.  My generally independent children seem to be needing a lot of direction.  Hoping it works itself out before the end of next week.

3.  Nothing specifically new for me, at this time, but maybe in the next month or two.  The kid have lots of changes this year, which does have an effect on my time and schedule, so we'll see how it all works out.

1.  Has the new school year started for you and your family?  When?

Yes, a couple of weeks ago.  

2.  Have you gotten into the groove of the new year yet?

No, not yet.  I need to get into a groove soon.

3.  Are you starting anything brand new this fall, that you haven't done in the years past?

Working on letting go for me with my oldest.  New grades for the kids of course, but same school and the kids are in the same sports this fall, so not much new there.  I'm not driving near as much since the kid drives and has a car, so that is new for me.

1.  We're in our third week of school now.  So far I am enjoying being back in the classroom, which is a good thing, since I'm doing an overload this semester.

2.  I think we're in as much of a routine as we will ever be.

3.  Nothing brand new, at least yet.

Mine started school just over a week ago and quickly got into the groove.  After camps were done and the weather got a little cooler, they were just bored and ready for school.  I'm in the groove, I guess.  New this fall is driving our neighbors home after the same sports practice older DD has.  I'm hoping that ends with the season!  I've seen carpooling become habit forming for some.

Wow, that's early.  If I had a nice friend driving, I'd sleep in too!

Yeah, last year since they had to use another school, practice was 6-8am. This year it is 7-9am.
