Well, we go back to school in just a few weeks!
I have a mixture of feelings on the matter… Grief, denial, excitement…
I mentioned on Facebook recently that the school emailed me my class roster and I started to pray for my incoming little ones by name. What a joy to shepherd their hearts and change their diapers!
While I am thrilled to be back in the classroom, I just want to linger a bit longer in these summer months. I have loved being with my boys, staying up late because I know I don’t have to set my alarm at bedtime, thoughtfully planning grocery lists, making dinner, organizing our home, being able to have regular play dates with friends, and blog! It has been so lovely to stay somewhat regularly connected with y’all. I am afraid I might have to disappear for a bit once the crazy gets going!
Nonetheless, I am extremely pleased with the teacher Happy Buddy was assigned this year, so we are celebrating with an extra special countdown to school.
I grabbed a small jar and Happy Buddy counted out the amount of treats needed to have one each day leading up to his first day of Kindergarten.
No need to remind him to participate in this kind of countdown!
Eeek! Kindergarten! I can’t believe I have a Kindergartener. I think there is homework in Kindergarten! If I can’t even make dinner during the school year, then I don’t know if we’re going to survive this. 🙂
Do you go back to school soon?
