School Starting

So, I keep putting off posting because I'm a slacker on getting pictures off of my camera; that is my goal for tomorrow.

One of the greatest blessings for us this month is school starting. The kids were so ready to go, and I was ready to send them too. Is that bad for a mom to be excited for school to start, just for her own sanity?

Andrew got a young, fun teacher that he just loves, and Sara got Andrew's kindergarten teacher. I have to tell you though, sending Sara to Kindergarten was hard on me. Even though I wanted her to go, and she was excited to go, I was sad to let her go. When I dropped her off there was a little boy next to her crying, and then his mom started crying- I had to get our of there fast before Sara saw me tearing up. I cried off and on while she was gone. Isn't motherhood is emotionally draining? The first day of school is just a bitter-sweet experience.

Now that we got the first day of school past us, I'm loving it :)
Here are our school-time blessings:
1. The kids love school, and keep busy doing something of worth.
2. They have great teachers- I've said before how grateful I am for teachers and the education system.
3. They are more tired at night.
4. And best of all for me..... drum roll...... I get time off!!!! If I get Mac asleep I get 1 1/2- 2 hrs of peace!! I can't tell you how exciting that is-- Ahhh, it's wonderful
Although we enjoyed our summer, we are happy school is back in!
