…and they are all (well almost all) at school.

The summer is officially OVER. Well for them anyway. They get a few days of school, then comes Rosh Hashannah, a few more days of school, then Yom Kippur, then Sukkot break. So, if we revisit my first statement, summer might be over, but school doesn’t really start until after the chagim.

But then again, if it doesn’t really start till after the chagim, what the heck am I doing waking up at the crack of dawn to imbibe my caffeinated sanity-drink in order to be bright eyed and bushy tailed (ha!) to get the kidlets up and off to school?!!

This morning, I had 3 of them out by 7.30. I always like to say I would pack lunches the night before, but hey, I am good, but not that good. Besides, being children, they would change their mind about what they wanted with a few hours of decent sleep.

The little one is showering right now, excited about the first day of third grade. He has decided to wear a button-down shirt and dress pants for his first day. His backpack is ready by the front door, and his excitement has been building for days.

The others played it very cool – after all, in seventh, eighth and tenth grade, you have had a lot of first days. I am glad that at least one of them is excited!! (but can he keep the chattering down a bit, the coffee hasn’t kicked in yet?!).

Me, what will I do today? I think as soon as ChatterBox’s carpool has left, I will go back to bed. Because I can. Ha! The other choice is to clean and do laundry. Hmm, which would you pick?
