    ACK! The morning went pretty smoothly overall. I had great intentions to clean the house all day but I've just been sitting here enjoying my first peace and quiet in 3 months. Ahhhhhh.

    But now I really need to get down to business. The kids sure make a wreck of this place over the summer.

    Did anyone else start today? How did it go? My kids were all great - even my new Jr. Higher was really excited and not nervous at all.

    Well done momma!!! Can you believe how quickly this summer flew by?? So glad the first day morning went smoothly!! Yay!!

    We start on Wednesday and I'm partly boo-hooing at the too-fast passage of time and partly really excited for the normalcy of the school year and my plans for work and home.

    Hope everyone has a fabulous day!!

    27th here as well. I need to go do online stuff already for DS though so that they'll release his schedule for us next week. I have a feeling our last few weeks of summer are going to fly by.

    Glad your morning went smoothly, Karah! Hope the kiddos had a terrific first day! :)

    Glad it went well, Karah! You deserve to savor the peace and quiet on the first day. You earned it. :)

    My kids go back on the 15th. As much I am bordering on a giant freak out with my teenager starting high school and my baby going to kindergarten, I think I am ready to get back to a normal schedule. This summer has been crazy!

    We have one more week to go before ETD (estimated time of departure). Both kids have orientations this week. Apparently my son, who is also starting middle school this year, is going to require a Jansport backpack, so he won't be made fun of by older students. *sighs* And my daughter starts in a new high school. Three miles away is a heckava lot better than a 10 mile drive each morning let me tell you.

    Can't wait for school to start!

    Glad everything went great, Karah! :) My little niece started 2 weeks ago and the others will start next week. Summer went by fast.

    I haven't decided when we'll start thinking right after labor day

    So glad you took a breather on the first day... You probably needed it :)
