and off to School they go...

Summer Break is over, it's the First Day of School. My 1st Grader and two 4th Graders are going to be in classes all day and I'm going to be busy partying  cleaning house. Feels a bit strange to not have any kids around me for this many hours but I know that they'll be back home in no time. Last year's mamapedia article made me so sad but I'm not reading it again even though Panda Girl is in First Grade. I'm going to get off this computer, jump into my car and go shopping. Or I may drive back to school and beg the teachers to let me hang around in school where all my children are volunteer. Even if only for today...


  1. That is just about the sweetest thing I've heard all day!! Enjoy your freedom and all the excitement when they get home and share their day with you! <3

    1. Thanks, Karolyn! {Hugs} The Quiet that is in the house now will be so over once the girls come back. I miss their noisy chatter but I'm going to try to enjoy this while it lasts. :)

  2. Awww a bittersweet day! Sorta looking forward to the littlest being in kindergarten next year but since she's my last, I know how much I'll miss her too.

  3. I know how you feel... it is always bittersweet when they go back to school. Mine have been back for a few weeks and I am actually enjoying the quiet now. :)

    I love the picture of your girls, sooo sweet!

    Enjoy your "me" time!!

  4. I have the biggest grin on my face reading your post. I am so in that same place, lol!! You put it in words perfectly! ;)

  5. Oh I just laughed SO hard regarding your 'crossed out' words, Jin!!! Okay, so WHAT did you really do on the first day of THEIR school?! ;-)

  6. You're a good mom. Enjoy the whirlwind of parenting!
