Yes, the first day of school still gets me teary eyed. This summer felt like such a summer of growth for the kids. Max got taller. Malia is even more independent than ever. Both are settling into the things the love (and don’t love) and don’t necessarily need mommy around for comfort. Beyond day 1, they didn’t even need mommy to walk them to class anymore. WTH!
You’d think I was raising teenagers already or something. But nope, they’re still my little babies & they will tolerate their mommy’s need for tradition and cheese.
I finally got one of these First Day of School boards from Michael’s for $5.00! They were always sold out in previous years but was lucky to nab a couple for myself. I love that the back of the board has My Last Day of School so you can see how your kids have changed over the course of the school year. You can, of course, purchase similar ones from Amazon. This one is a little bit more affordable.
I would be lying if I said I wasn’t just a teensy weensy excited to have them go back to school. Don’t get me wrong – Summer vacation is fun & we bond so much during that time but structure is so so good!
Who would you say was more excited?
How was the first day of school in your household?
