Well they are technically not school age but I am glad they are back at school. DS2 (26)is finally doing business school. DD1 (24)is back at college to finish her degree. and DD2 (21) started her electrical apprenticeship with the union!
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!
This school year was the first in 15 that I don't have a child in school. My baby just started college.
Watch your thoughts; the become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
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!
