Yesterday was the first day of school. Ben is a big 8th grader (his last year of middle school) and Sam is in 4th grade with the same teacher she had in Kindergartem (we are very excited about that)
This summer seemed to zoom by a little too quickly for my liking, but I have to admit I do like that fact that kids are back in school.
We need some structure around here so it's a good thing.
The start of school also means back to work for me.
I do English testing for my old district and it allows me to make a little mad money without being tied down to a "real job".
Plus it allows me the flexibility to volunteer at the kids' schools which is nice.
I hope your first day of school went well.
