It came! The big yellow bus! The kids got on it and now it is quiet. Very quiet. Yes there are still two little bodies running around but that is 2/6 the amount of “noise and needs.” The kids were ready. I was ready, so it is win win for everyone!
This year I have an 8th grader (oldest grade at the middle school), two 5th graders (oldest grade at the elementary), one 3rd grader, and two preschoolers who will start next week going three afternoons a week. I love this time of year. New beginnings and we all go off to do our own thing during the day and come back as a family in the afternoons/ evenings (And I can go to the McDonalds drive-thru by MYSELF and get a chocolate shake without shelling-out 6 more dollars for cones for all the riders in the back seats! Yeah, the savings!) Here’s to a great year!
