But we finally made it. Today our school district welcomes our children back to school, there are no more excuses for chaotic randomness. I had already returned to work but that was the final puzzle piece to complete the picture of "normal". Yes, normal can be boring. It can stifle and without a bit of occasional spontaneity, discontent can set in. But from a guy that almost prides himself on being laid back and spontaneous, I can confidently declare that I was happy to resume our routine this morning.
It was a bit strange getting up extra early to take the kids to school. I almost forgot to put their lunches in their backpacks. And I almost drove off without handing them the aforementioned backpacks in the carpool lane. So we are all a bit rusty as we return to what was once so familiar and second nature. But I think we are all also comforted by it too. I can't quite put my finger on why routine is so mysteriously connected to contentment and maybe its just our family. But I suspect many of you can relate and I personally thank God for it!
