The countdown is on in my home. How many more days until school starts!!
Oddly, its one kid and one adult getting super excited about school starting. And one kid who is kind of...well...blah about it.
The Blah kid...could be that its going to be a lot different from last year. The move from half day Kindergarden to Full day 1st grader, recesses, lunch at school, riding the bus home...could be intimidating, thus the Blah towards the starting of school. ( that and she isn't super school crazy...likes the social part and science!)
But, the other one....Super excited about school starting soon. She can't wait to get the school supplies, wear the new clothes, find out who her teacher is, the classroom and get started learning new things too. Plus being around friends again...its all good to her!
And then, there is one adult in the home who is probably the MOST excited of all. Nope, its not me. For me, school years just bring a few added elements to my day...like taking them to school, making sure that they have lunches or money in their accounts, dressed, keep track of their schedules....its fine, but not something I get really excited about. BUT...The Hubby - HE is the one super excited about the kids starting school!
He doesn't start back to school for 3 weeks AFTER the kids do. So that means that instead of watching the girls all day long, after working all night....he is free! He will get to do whatever he wants...whenever he wants...eat what he wants...play video games as much as he wants...all responsibility free. I think he is looking forward to it more then he did our vacations.
I however don't share his excitement over his looming freedom tho....I figure I will be coming home to basically a house that has homed an 18 year old boy all day...video games, chip bags.....the signs of HIS summer vacation time.
Before he goes back to school!
THEN, I get excited!!!
