Not Ready

I am not ready for school to start.  Don't get me wrong.  I want them out of the house so it will be at least be a little quieter here.  But let's weigh the pros and cons here.  During the summer we can sleep in.  During the school year we have to get up at 7...don't even get me started with early morning seminary.  I have another year before that!  During the school year we have homework and projects...oh the projects!  Last year it seemed we had them coming out our ears.  I wanted to shove the projects down the teachers throats write a letter concerning the work load.  In the summer, we can come and go as we please.

During the school year, there are less fights during the day.  During the school year you always remember the date and the day of the week.  During the school year you can go shopping with less children or if you are lucky enough NONE!  During the school year...this is why I am not ready this year.  I am burnt out on it.  The battles, the tears, the pressures.   But I will do it and savor every weekend as they are usually homework free.  Usually.

So there you have it.  I am not ready for school to start up again.  I am enjoying my break of sorts.  But in 5 days when it starts...we shall see what song I am singing then!

Yes it really is a good and bad thing. Not to mention the worry as to how they are doing and how others are treating them

I am right there with you! Sometimes the stress of children 24/7 outweighs the stress of school stuff!

We've got a little longer to wait, but I get the dilemma.

I don't have kids but i'm sure when the day comes I will be happy to see school roll around again. But I am sad that summer is almost at an end.

Funny... I have so many things I could say about class projects too... and none of it is very nice. My kids have started back and in some ways it is good but in in most ways not so much.

Happy Saturday!

I'm with you on this one. I hate getting them up early and fighting over the bedtime. And the extra-curriculars? Aack!

I'm still not there yet. I am looking forward to those days and dreading them at the same time. You guys start school early!

Ugh! It's much better to have the rug rats home and just get up late, no matter what! And why don't they have school for kids between the hours of say 1PM and 5 PM. Best of all worlds. Then the schools wouldn't even have to feed them.

5 days? Really??
Yeah, I'm ready for school to start...too bad my kids are too young to go still. I'm kidding, totally kidding. :)
Enjoy the last few days of sleeping in!!
