Back to School Today

It's here!  Back to school has finally arrived.

The kids look adorable don't they?  Where does the time go?

So many things are going through my mind today. 

I can't help but be full of questions much like theirs.  What is the teacher like?  Will the homework start right away today?  How much homework will be normal?  Will they be able to keep up?  Will they make new friends?  Will they learn lots of new and wonderful things?

Then there are all the introspective questions.  Have I prepared them well?  Are they ready for the new challenges they will face this year?  Am I doing a good job homeschooling?  Did I get enough new materials for Hammer?  Should I push him to the next level of texts now?

Mostly, I am just full of wishes for all three of the kids. 

I wish for them to continue to love learning.  I wish for them to still come to mom to fix their problems.  I wish them love and happiness and new adventures.  I wish them a world full of hope.

I can't wait for Fuzzy and Pumpkin Muffin to come home and share with me all the details of their beginning! 

After all, Hammer and I are off to a great start together!

Be well,
Dawn

I didn't know that you homeschooled one! Where have I been? My sister homeschools both of hers.

Hugs,

Beautiful kids! You are doing a great job with them, Dawn. I'm sure they will have a successful school year.

I think one of the longest days of the year for moms is that first day back to school after summer vacation. House is quiet; we miss them and we are waiting to hear all about their days. Pretty soon routines will be reestablished............

The first day of school was tough for me this year because my daughter started middle school.  I was soooo worried about her.  But come home really excited about her new teachers and ready for a new year.  I hope your kids have the same response.

I had a great compliment and then I read all of these comments and realized you will have a big head if I say what I was going to.  Instead I will just tell you that I think....................................................................................................

I like your nicknames to your kids..do you call them that? I need to be more on that "playful side" with my kids specially with the 11 & 15, you know.....I am being more playful with my youngest who is 3.... at first I felt silly but the more I do it the more I'm feeling settled and comfortable with it.
Thanks for a wonderful entry, Dawn!
