First Day Of School, Now Exhale…

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL, FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL! I love when Nemo bounces around yelling that to his dad! He is so excited about the new adventures that the day holds for him. Well the summer is over and Today is THAT Day! First day back to school for the Diva and all other Texas youth!
Aaaahhh, I can just hear all the other parents letting out that long sigh of relief! Letting out that deep breath that we have been holding ALL SUMMER LONG! No more do we have to hear, It’s too hot, there is nothing to do, can I go to the mall, can I go to the movies, are we going anywhere, and the list of endless summer questions go on and on for two long months! Well at last it is over and the kids are back in school.
Have that extra cup of coffee, actually read the paper and enjoy the quiet for a minute. Take a minute before you start doing all the things you could not do with the kids at home (you know, dusting, vacuuming, cleaning, running around the house naked … whatever!). Of course we have to prepare for the next round of chatter when they get home : I hate this class, that teacher hates me, can I join this club, can I join that club, you have to sign this form, you have to fill out that form, the kids in my school are stupid, I got a new bestee (kid speak for best friend), I saw that girl from last year (last years bestee) and she got fat over the summer! Yep and so it begins … the new school year!
For this minute in time my house is quiet. All three of my ladies are gone (2 in school, 1 taking care of pregnant lady business) and I can breathe, think, pray, reflect, and just … BE!

The DIVA has left the building!!!!!!

Happy First Day Of School!!!!!!

    Although firstborn is gone, I still have secondborn here to homeschool, but it's still just a tad bit quieter.

    My baby started Kindergarten and I missed him. I thought school would be a relief, but getting up 6:30 is not fun. The good news, is that I can return to full time blogging, the bad news is that I get to return to full time blogging.
