Back to School '16-'17

Back to School
No more lazy days
No more sleeping late and staying up late
No more carefree days...
Instead, there are alarm clocks
Papers to sign...oh the papers to sign
Driving to school 4 times a day..ugh
Lunches to pack
And a quiet house...
Julia is off to college, Sam is in high school-9th grade, Xin 5th grade (middle school at our school) Jaida is in 4th grade and Miss Lulu is in 1st grade.
That leaves me home alone from 7:45 to 2:45.
It has been 18 years since I have had this kind of time.
I have had a child/children home all day or part of a day or every other day for the last 18 years!
Everybody is happy!
Even this old mom. Well, one day I might, just maybe, have shed a few tears.
It was just too quiet. And the dogs aren't great conversationalists.
But I have adjusted. Just like everyone else.
And ya know what?
7 hours goes by REALLY fast!!!
Happy School year my precious kiddos!
I love you and wish you a fantastic year!

 My High School and Middle School boys
