  • I miss them, but I know that they are in a good school, they come home everyday with a smile on their face. It's also nice having "me" time. I look forward to seeing what they have done and helping them with their homework.

  • Well, usually I get sad. This yr, though, I have a broken ankle, and they were driving me nuts getting into stuff, so I was actually glad for the first day of school. My youngest started kindergarten, and I did get sad over that, but mostly I was relieved to have a few hours where I could rest and not worry about what they were getting into while I'm trying to heal.

  • My kids started half-day kindergarten and 3rd grade almost a month ago. I was sad about the little one going off to school for the first couple days - even cried over it.

    Now I realize how much I can get done while they're both in school, and how much I enjoy being able to just sit and watch the news or something in the morning if I choose. Having them in school is great.

  • It's great. They love school and I've gotten lots done around the house since they've been back. They come home happy, ready for a snack and ready to get homework done, which is always a fun time, cause with my 2nd grader I get to help quiz him with his spelling. We've just had great days so far.

  • I love it! They love far! But I honestly miss them. The house is super quiet, you could hear a pin drop. Then when they get home, all hell breaks loose! lol.
