Today marks the first day of school for MANY school boards, ours included. For weeks I have seen countdowns on facebook from parents, or watched interviews on the news and all these parents cannot wait for the kids to be back in school. I don't fall into that category.
I am sad. We had such a wonderful summer, filled with great memories, new friends and lots of fun. I am not ready for that to be over. I actually ENJOY the summer and school breaks where he is home with me, and I know that Mr. K is going to be sad not having him home most of the time either.
I know he will be just fine at school, but this being the first year he is all day is really tugging at my heart for some reason - I realize that he is growing up, and he won't be with me forever; but for whatever reason, while I know that HE is ready, I am not.
I am fully prepared to cry my way home from the school after dropping him off - I will make sure that he doesn't see my tears - that's the great thing about sunglasses!
