I'm still not sure but I'm curious to hear what everyone else is doing!  This is just for fun!!  It could be starting a new class, organizing the garage, exercising, changing around the family room...whatever!!

Sorry, I dont celebrate by buying things, just cant justify it in my house. I just enjoy the peace and quite. With DD home, its constant arguing from the kids, with her at school, the 2 little ones mind their own businesses.

The first day of school, my son and I went and finished christmas shopping (clearance:) ) and then came home and took a nap.

I enjoyed a empty house for the first time in 6yrs. No fighting, no crying, no he pushed me, he looked at me, and well you get the picture. I celebrate everyday with having a house the stays clean all day. Oh my god it is the most wonderful part.

I dont understand why you would celebrate being with out your kids all day??  I guess I enjoy mine to much.LOL A empty house makes me sad, I love the sound of them running around playing and the sounds of them learning.

I am an introvert...and a husband that's gone 3 whole days a week if not more.  My youngest will only be doing a half day of kindergarten.  My 2 daughters get along really well and I love how they play together.  I will be very sad when they are at school.  Sometimes I just need a little bit of quiet during the day rather than at the end of the day when they are asleep....*sigh*  We all need that.  Many people consider the start of the school year to be the same as turning over a new leaf.  The children get to learn new things in school and we get to do new things, too.  It doesn't mean I don't enjoy my kids...my Mom passed away when I was 7.  My kids are my life and I am so blessed that DH has let me be a SAHM.

I work full time outside of the home, and so I usually have less free time when school starts.  I try to get all of those kids of projects done over the summer when we all have more down time.

I don't know. I haven't thought about it, to be honest. I doubt anything. It will be a normal cleaning day without him home.

 On the first day of school I enjoyed my freedom for the kids by volunteering at school.  Now please, tell me that I'm not insane! lol
