In Michigan a few years ago there was a law passed that stated the kids didn't start school until after labor day. We took it easy over the weekend..Had a BBQ with the family, played outside and cleaned the house.
This year Alanna starts kindergarten and Hannah goes into the 5th grade. My heart just skipped a beat typing that, lol. My baby girls are growing up before my eyes.
I thought I had a handle on Alanna starting school this year but when she walked up the big bus steps, I got a little choked up. Seeing her with no hesitation in her step and a smile on her face, brought the tears to my eyes. My day was brightened by my baby boy...After we got home from the bus stop he kept saying, "That was cute, mama, that was cute" I asked him what was cute and he told me...the bus. :)
The house is quiet and I miss my girls...Ben keeps asking if the girls are outside and if he can go too. I try to tell him they are at school, but he just waits by the door for them to come home :( He wanted to stare at the bus pictures all morning. He is now down for a nap and its just me...The kitchen is clean, I vacuumed yesterday and all the laundry is put away....sigh.....
I know in a few weeks I will wish for a day like this...quiet, and nothing to do, but for now on the 1st day of school , I will sit and wait for the time to tick by, until its time to pick up my girls from the bus stop this afternoon...tick..tock..tick...tock.
