You all know my oldest headed off to college.... which is truly weird........ truly.....
And... the other two - have gone back to school. Maybe you didn't know this - but for the last three years we have done a home/online school option. So I have taught 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th grades..... and this year, I don't have to teach. It felt very weird not brushing up on Algebra II ( I have algebra 1 and geometry already done!!)
Wednesday was the first day of school for the kiddos, and what a change. We had to get in the car at the appropriate time, and get to a specified location at the correct time. Not that we were lazy schooling here... No! I am a very driven person, much to my children's dismay.
We were,however, a little more flexible when it came time to ride horses, help our uncle with chores, and go hunting with our dogs. That will change. Sadly.
Oh! and the paperwork!!! Both kids came home with a backpack full of papers to fill out, sign, and return. Not bad stuff, just a LOT!!! They each have more than one teacher now. I just used my MOM card - and that worked well.
So now, I am back to work full time. And my first day - rocked!!!! I got to quilt almost all day, and then I worked on getting photos ready from a family session. I LOVED it!!!
Between Quilting and Photography - I am just going to be a happy camper all day long!!! Two things I love the most!
I think though, every once in a while I may get lonely. I got really used to having them around, and hanging out with these goofballs. I love them. They are really wonderful kids ( even though they are not so good at keeping their rooms clean).
And.... one of them is way taller than me, and the other is catching up WAY to quick!!!
