Kid is in college this year - an exercise in letting go. I am a high school teacher and am glad to have my students back. I love my Job!!!!
No kids - but I work at a college so life gets hectic this time of year for me at work.

mine have been back in school for a few weeks already. it is good to have a little down time that's for sure!
Women are angels and when someone breaks our wings we simply continue to fly .... on our broomsticks. We are flexible like that
My kids started back on August 11 (we have longer holiday vacations here, shorter summers, so we start earlier). It is always nice to get them back into a routine. I love my darlings, but having them both together all the time (ages 13 & 7) is annoying because they are constantly finding ways to irritate each other (and ME!).
Of course, back to school for them means back to work for me (I teach), so that's a bit of a drag. Oh well, you can't have it both ways!
Life is too short not to LIVE OUT LOUD!
This school year was the first in 15 that I don't have a child in school. My baby just started college.

No school age kids anymore. Grandkids are being home schooled for the first year so my daughter is now busier than ever.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass.....it's about learning to dance in the rain.
No school age kids here, but I know my kids are happy that my grandkids are back in school :)

hmmmm... we are a home schooling family so "back in school" means back to school for me too. I graduated my twins this past June and now only have one to do school with. I am looking forward to working with just one child, but I'm not glad that vacation is done. I had so much I wanted to do this summer!
I have two inactive blogs. When I get active with them again, I'll post my links. For now am just blogging here on Spark People.
