Back to school for us in our neck of the woods…I know some areas wait until after Labor Day but here in the South we like to just barely dip our toes in the school waters and then…..have a little break. Kinda ease into it…nice and easy like.
Whether you home school or work full-time and farm out the learnin’ to the public and private sector schools, back-to-school time is a grand time indeed. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some summer-time….and I don’t even GET a summer break. However, all good things must come to an end and now is the time…..so bring on the paper, pencils, 1-inch binders and glue sticks. We are ready to get back into the routine of things. Not as much fun, yet it’s a part of life and we’ll just keep movin’ on and looking back and wondering, “How in the HECK are we back in school ALREADY!?!?”.
I have to say that I enjoy the summer for the simple fact there is no homework to fuss over, but having kids back in school means more structure, something I’m better at dealing with. 🙂
I’m much better with structure, too!! as you know…..
I bet you will miss them though.
It’s bittersweet, but since I’m @ work all day, at least I know they are being “productive” 😉
