Wait, I’m not ready!

Racing away from deer flies.

The last week of summer vacation.  Facebook is fillled with staged photos of parents jumping for joy when the little terrors darlings climb back aboard the yellow-bus-of-freedom once more.  Now typically, I’d be cackling and counting down the days with the rest of the over-tired, had enough Mamas out there, but this year I’m….not.  Wait…what?
