this morning on this household! Today is the first day of school! I'm still not sure who was more excited...me or the kids! My oldest two girls chattered excitedly all morning long, watching the clock. As they shut the door with a bang, I breathed a sigh of relief. I'll definitely miss their help during the day, but realized this summer how much they/we need the routine, challenge and structure of school. Our son will start kindergarten tomorrow. He's still upstairs sawing logs, so he missed out on all the excitement.
I can't really sit back and enjoy my morning though. I have to get two packages ready to go (able mabel had an excellent sales day on Saturday, so I'm not complaining about getting the packages ready) and then race off to the oral surgeon. Our son has an extra tooth bud on the roof of his mouth that needs to be removed. Crazy!
I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of the school year. Getting on somewhat of a schedule! It almost feels like a new beginning!
