I ordered the boys' new backpacks today! Woo-Hoo! My excitement makes me think of that office supply store commercial where the mom is dancing down the isles. She is throwing school supplies into the cart while clicking her heals together. Two kids are dragging their feet along behind the cart with long faces.
It's not that I am in a hurry to get rid of my kids. I enjoy being home with them. But I think they are almost ready to be back at school. Maybe not the homework, but the structure and social settings are good for them. They miss seeing their friends all the time. They are ready for something new. I just have to get over the fact that I have a 3rd grader!
