I am sitting here singing my own little made up “Back to School” song.
Tomorrow is the day. And I am ready and I am excited. And *I* am not the one going back!
This summer has flown by. I never even managed to post photos or updates of our vacation. But, I assure you we did take one and it was pretty huge!
I never posted any of the fun day to day events that took place. I never posted about the movies and play dates and trips to the pool. But, I promise we had a lot going on.
I think that’s the problem. We can either do a lot, or I can post a lot. Seems that I can’t swing both. But, as the kids go back. I am starting to write my goals for the school year. I’m starting to plan and hope and think about what I can get done in those hours that I have the house to myself. I am dreaming about cleaning out closets and cupboards and starting to get things back to order. I know that most of these are plans that won’t get all the way accomplished, but at least I get a little bit of hope this time of year!
If you can believe it, I will have 4 kids at the same school again (yay!) in grades 1, 2, 5 & 6! We enjoyed meeting their teachers the other night and I finally feel like I know what I’m doing as the mom of elementary school kids (ya know, right before I have to start over again next year with middle school!).
I told D today that I was never able to sleep the night before school, this was true into college even. I was always excited and worried and anxious about what was to come. I hope that my kids share a bit of that excitement.
I promise I will post some photos tomorrow.
Hooray for back to school!!!!
