I don't like this time of year. It is a toss up of which is worse: back to school time or midwinter.
At least right now I have sunshine.
We got the schedule for one, and found out the teachers of the others. There is always that catch in my throat looking at the list. Hoping that the kids will like their teacher. That their teacher likes them! Do they have any friends in their class? Will their teacher have time to see who my child really is?
It makes it so real. School starts next week. Blah.

I do not feel blue when my kids go back to school most of the time...I am ready for my routine back!
But the last few years, that first week back to school has been my favorite week of the year--it's the week I get to be a student and improve MYSELF at Education Week!! SOOOOOOO looking forward to it!
Wish you could come with me and enjoy the rejuvenation!

I am blue and yellow-sad and happy-I guess that makes me "green"

I should go recycle something.

I can't stop singing "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" like the Staples commercial a few years back. The kids are getting tired of hearing it though.

I hope the kids like their new teachers! I always am excited for school to start, then I get a little over whelmed with all the homework and paperwork!!

I feel your pain, I didn't like it either. I hope it's short-lived and good adjustments are ahead.

My homeschooler's heart always aches a little at this time of year. I miss him and the time seems to be going faster every year.
