Here are my rough and tumbles on their first day of school. My heart squoze up when I had to leave them behind, but then I must admit after getting into that car with only one child, I began to hear the thud of another heart's anthem -- FREEDOM!
I ran more errands before 11:30 am on that first day of school than I've gotten done on any other morning since getting on this crazy ride called It's a Small World (and I'm not talking Disneyland folks). That still gave me an entire hour and a half to do whatever I felt inclined to do before going to pick up my little rookies. I think I like school. And I think they mostly like it as well.
