Today is the first day back to school.
I thought this day would NEVER come!
I know, I know. I sound horrible to say I'm excited. But in my defense, it's been a long summer and they are ready to go to school.
My oldest son begins 2nd grade and my middle child, a girl, starts kindergarten. The youngest boy starts Mom's Day Out next week. I hope he enjoys his last week of freedom. We met their teachers last week, dropped off supplies, found out more supplies we needed, picked out outfits for the first day of school (to coordinate with their best friends) got hair cuts, the whole nine yards. The only thing left for me to do is make lunches and pray we don't all oversleep in the morning.
It could happen.
We haven't had to set an alarm since the end of the school year.
I'm praying for them both to have a wonderful year. I'm asking God to give them great memories and good experiences, friendships to last, and good choices to be made.
What about you? Anyone in your house starting school this week? If so, are you excited, nervous, dreading it?
