Expressions: Back-To-School Time....Already?

Is it really that time already? It must be~ because the calendar by my desk has the words 'First Day Back-to-School' written in red Sharpie marker on the agenda for early next week. Wow! The summer went by super fast. Like I mentioned in an earlier post, this time of year is soooo Bittersweet to me. I have such mixed feelings on back-to-school time. A little happy, a little sad, a little unsure........yep! All those feelings! :) For all the parents going through the same thing.....I feel your pain and your happiness~ both simultaneously! lol
A Thought For Today:
First Day of School-
There will be bigger hallways and bigger kids.
There will be new sounds, new friends and new teachers
whose names might sound a little scary at first.
She'll line up, look back and find her new seat in a new classroom
and at that moment you'll realize
this is your first day of school too.

What's funny is the fact that kids usually adjust better than adults in most cases! So while back-to-school may be tough on the parents sometimes....usually the kids get right through it with ease! I always feel better after the first few days of school and I'm sure you will too! For the parents that welcome this time of year with open arms......what's your secret? lol
Take Care! Until next time,

I'm ready for my kids to go back to school! Between my three kids (two of them are school-age) and my two nieces (both school-age) I have a lot of kids and I am ready for a break. This has been a long, hard summer!

The ds has mixed feelings too. We were talking bout it the other day...he's sad summer's gone but excited to see his friends again. Plus, this year, some of his friends that got held back early on, will me joining him in middle school. BUT...he won't be at home with his little sister. Summer wasn't much of a vacation this year, and his "vaction" from his sis will be when he's at school. He doesn't know what to be happy about. LOL!

I am still sitting here shocked that you have a son in Middle School! You look soooo young! :)
I never realized "Yes-Yes" was that much older than "No-No" (as you so cutely refer to them!)
Poor "No-No" is probably gonna miss her big brother when he's away on his "vacation"! lol :)
