  • All my kids are grown, but I'll never forget my son's 1st day going to School on the School Bus. He sat on the bus and waved, and " I "stood and cried." I said to myself, "What's wrong with this picture.?"

  • My youngest daughter starts kindergarten in the fall. She's child #4 of 5 so we're old hats at this. She's all excited and so am I. She just asked me if she gets to go to school tomorrow, lol. Yesterday was the last day of school for the older kids. She can't wait. I'm actually probably more excited than she is.
    Next year the kids will be in 6th (new middle school for her) 4th, 3rd and kindergarten. That leaves me at home with a 1yo. We all can't wait for the new changes (except maybe the oldest who doesn't want to go to middle school).
