Well, that’s in a perfect world. Today was a somewhat perfect world except for the fact that I was all too sleep to fully participate in the excitement. However, I was smiling from ear to ear as I looked at how they have grown and how my youngest was all dressed up in her kindergarten uniform.
Although I prefer the relaxed summer schedule the beginning of the year is exciting. My son is a big-time third grader – at the lower end of the totem pole at the elementary school, my daughter is a big-time second grader – one of the head honchos at her primary building, and my baby – along with her quivering lip and little hands rubbing her eyes – is experiencing kindergarten in the big-kid building.
Now, remind me I said life is good when I start complaining about homework, rushed schedules, naughty kids who don’t wanna do homework and every other annoyance that comes along with the school year. Oh yea, life will be good EXCEPT at 5:45 every morning. *snort chuckle*
If your kids have started school, what is the best thing about the school year for you? If they haven’t, when do they start and what are you looking forward to?
