Back to school! What a delightful time of year.
Good morning, Mommy. Mine are headed back today, and there is palpable excitement in our home this morning. My thirteen year old has been up and dressed and packed since 6 AM! Not that he’s excited.
Everyone has new shoes and fresh notebooks and high hopes for today and for the year ahead. And, of course they are more than a little nervous too. As is Mommy.
We want so much for them, don’t we?
Well, enjoy prepping, brushing and patting your little ones out the door in their back to school finery. Take pictures. Hug them tightly. Tell them how wonderful they are.
And then, whatever time you get home on whatever your kids’ first day is, enjoy hearing all their rushed and excited tales of friends and teachers and classes. These are some of the golden days.
