Julie, London and Boston's first day of school 2015

Today Julie, London and Boston started back to school (6th, 4th and 3rd grades) and tomorrow Rachel will return to Fletcher Miller (her special needs school).  Looking at the raw pictures I took early this morning I realized I should have put more thought into photo composition.  All of the single pictures remind me of mug shots.  Ha.

Boston, on the left, has the perfect “I don’t want to go back to school” expression that we all felt this morning. The summer has come to an end and its time to pick up my website work load.  Time to recover from “back to school” expenses and start saving for Christmas. 🙂

Crazy Time: Surviving Divorce and Rebuilding a New Life The funny part about the book in relationship to my life is that you really can’t just build a new life when you have kids, have a dying child and work with your spouse.  Splitting up is easy enough to do, just have some wine or whiskey on hand for when the nights get lonely.  But its the aftermath of the split that you have to be super careful with when you have children.  It’s especially hard with a sick child, and having a special needs or terminally ill child will often bring families to the edge of divorce.  Loving my children means loving their father, he hasn’t done anything to me or our children that makes our damage(read the rest)
