School has started for my kids and some parents are cheering while others are bummed out. For me it’s rather bitter sweet. I love having them home and having fun with them but on the flip side, I know deep down they were anxious to get back and hang with all of their friends.
My younger two went back yesterday and thank goodness, they both like the teachers they have this year so I am very excited for them. My older two started junior high today and couldn’t get out the door fast enough. They’re big kids now, going to a new school, worried about whether they look ok (yes, even my son whose hygiene is questionable asked if he had bats in the cave…that would be boogers in the nose) and hugs are only allowed before we leave they house!
So I guess it’s back to the old routine of getting up early, packing lunches, making it to school on time and that dreaded HOMEWORK! Good luck to all the moms out there on the new school year.
And yes, they still let me take their picture on the first day!
