School started this week. Let’s not discuss the fact that it’s only mid August. What really matters now is that it’s in session. I officially have a high school student and two fourth grade students. This is just bizarre.
My high school student is taking classes like Biology, Graphic Design, Geometry, Geography…you know, classes that basically help shape the rest of your life and your career path. It is mind blowing how quickly that happened. I remember his first day of Pre-K like it was just last week.
My fourth grade students are in separate classes this year. They are excited to be separate. I am not a fan. However, I am going to let it go and focus on the good that can happen with the separation instead of the annoying stuff that it brings for me.
With school starting we also have swim team, flag football, and basketball happening. You know – we do that just to keep ourselves running crazy. 😀
Every school year brings mild refusal to accept the fact that my children are growing up and won’t need me much longer. That fact makes me sad. The up side is that I get chance to watch my kids do amazing things, learn about life, and become awesome humans. I try to keep that in the front of my thoughts. The other stuff is just too sad.
