School started up here in Seattle this week. The rains returned. I think the nights of kids sleeping in next to nothing are just about done. Soccer, swim lessons, scouts; the short week was full to the brim, and dance doesn’t start until next week. It’s not even officially gone, and I miss summer already. Muriel is in preschool, three mornings a week, which feels so weird. Her first time. And I realized, our first US preschool experience. She loves it. The only sadness is that she doesn’t get to go the other two days. A few back-to-school photos are up on Flickr.
