August 27th - Back to School PISD!

By
Home Stager with Home Star Staging

For those of us with children in PISD we are counting down the last few days of summer vacation!!! At least we are in the Otto Household. 

(Otto Family trip to Bryson City, NC - July 2007)

We had an incredibly long 3 full months off this summer and during that time we did lots. 

From taking a much needed family vacation in the Smokey Mountains of Western North Carolina (beautiful scenery and great temps although I came back with a few souvenirs of my own - bug bites of unknown origin - I think they were in the blackberry bushes that I ate from continuously...) Bryson City, NC

to working, summer school, volleyball camp, reading, writing, staying up late, sleeping in (children), bbq's on the back deck, swimming, sunning and celebrating the passage of one child to 16 and the other to 12 - looking back now it was a great summer. 

The regular routine of school is finally about to start.

I actually felt a change in the air tonight - or maybe it was just that I left my back door open and the A/C was running out..... Anyway, we're back on "schedule" come Monday morning and honestly, I cannot wait! 

Back to school here in Plano, TX on Monday, August 27th. 

If you haven't already checked the City of Plano website here's some information from their latest press release for motorists on August 27th.

Of course the first day is always crazy for traffic!  Thankfully one of my children has a good enough sense of self to ride the bus for part of the year!  Thank you Lord!

Remember to be patient, it's going to be nuts and the safety of our children is first and foremost. 

I'm looking forward to the new school year with much anticipation.  I can still recall how I felt each time the new year rolled around.

Please feel free to share your summer memories here and how you spent it.

I hope you and yours had a wonderful summer!

Hey Karen how wonderful that you all spent such a great vacation together. I too spelled that "back to school" smell in the air. I passed a school today and they had a sign out front that said WELCOME BACK STUDENTS AND FACULTY..I thought they are rushing it just a bit, no?

Hi Phyllis - it was a great vacation and it seemed to end much too soon.  This summer has really flown by. I think I'm still in a state of denial that come Monday it all starts up again but I am looking forward to it once we get ourselves back on schedule.  I hope you had a great summer too!

Loreena - I'm looking forward to meeting your growing family too! We need to get together before you're out of commission for a bit once baby Yeo is here.
