A Brand New Day

It's the first time I've ever put "new blog post" on my list of things to do today. Usually, I float over to my blog and am antsy to fill it up with stuff. But lately I've felt like I had nothing NEW to say.

Now I do.

1. New school year! Today is the first day of school for my kids. All of them have a new bus stop. And, my twins are in first grade, so lots of firsts for them.... all day school, lunch at school, getting on and off the bus with their big brother. So fun!

2. I got a contract today for the next book in the Alvor series. I'll let you know as soon as I find out when the next book will be in stores.

3. Alone at home with my three-year-old. I was figuring out how long it's been since I've had just a three year old at home during the day. Ten years. Ten years ago my oldest was still an only child. It didn't last.

4. And now we have nap-time for my three-year-old. This is big. We had to abandon naps for a couple months this summer because our house was too crazy with kids. Of course, this means writing time for me. YAY!!!

I'll be pulling my kids out of school on Thursday and Friday to go to my niece's wedding on Friday. A five day weekend. I feel like I'm cheating. And then I promise to get back to the regularly scheduled life... work.
