For our school district, the first day of school is a mere week away. It's bitter sweet for me. I'm ready for the kids to get back in the classroom, but I'm upset that I didn't get to do a lot of things I thought we'd do this summer. Our days were filled with cheer practice, work, doctor's appointments and a slew of other commitments.
I want a do-over. But in reality would it really be any different? Probably not. So I'm facing the new school year with optimism. Excited for the kids, and happy that my home will be just a little bit quieter during the working hours. And of course, looking forward to that next big break.
