Well, today was the big day. I have a 5th grader, a 3rd grader and a 1st grader. It is hard to believe that Alex is in 5th grade already. It seems like it was just a few months back that I was handing him over to the kindergarten teacher, hoping that she would take good care of him. I don't think the kids were too excited about starting a new school year. But I will have to admit I was really happy. There had been way too much togetherness over the summer. They were ready to start seeing other adults besides me. I was ready to have some time for me to do whatever I wanted or needed to do. Or just to do nothing at all.
I got an ear full after picking them up from school. I heard all about the teachers, the friends in class, how Eli did not have enough time to eat all of his lunch and that Olivia recognized her teacher from VBS.
Our goal this year is to be on time every morning.
