My youngest starts kindergarten this fall!!

They're ALL going to be in school.

I've NEVER had all day without kids...

I was going to start college but I think I want a break from everything for a little bit, and I can start college again in the spring??

What do you do all day without kids? I think I'm going to walk. A LOT! :)

I had the same "problem" last year. All kids in school. I really dove into the volunteering at the school. There are a lot of things that teachers could use help with, especially with the younger kids. I was up there probably 10 hours a week sometimes more and sometimes less. Kept me busy!

My last child started last year. I sat around and did nothing. It felt great but then I got bored so I went back to work :)
It was really great for relaxing and just being lazy lol.

My kids are in school. I am very busy from 9am-2pm. I run daily from 9 am - 10 am ish sometimes a bit longer.  Then I have to buy groceries, cook, clean, pay bills, organize the house, take away/pick up drycleaning.  Read.  Then when I pick up kids I take them to tennis and feed balls/hit with them (they wanna be pros).  By 9 pm, I am zonked.  

Oh yes I also help in the classroom once a week.

My youngest is going off to Pre-K and I'll be home all day too.  I'm in the same boat you are, lol.

I think I will relax and be lazy for a while. Or maybe just push myself into walking outside more, until it gets too cold. I hate the cold! lol I know the dog will keep me busy but not THAT busy. I want to do something productive.

I started volunteering the day my oldest started school.  When my YOUNGEST started school - I was able to 'ramp up' my volunteering (mostly at the school....in fact, I was PTO President the year my youngest was in PK).

I also enjoyed getting to run all my errands (especially grocery shopping) alone - getting the house cleaned in peace - and even getting to go out for coffee/visit friends without worrying how long the kids would be entertained.

 I'm not in the boat yet, I have a 5 mth old so when my two oldest are in school, the baby keeps me busy. I still have 3 years till all mine are in school lol
