Here it is, the first day of school has finally arrived! I love it when it rains on the first day. I think it makes it easier to sit inside all day long. I always felt like I wasn't missing out on as much when I was a child and had to trudge off to school leaving the summer behind.
Today we are under a rainfall warning; this may be taking it a bit far, a misty morning would have sufficed. But the kids all got out the door to their various destinations looking wonderful in their new clothes, carrying their new backpacks full of new pencils and paper. And here I sit in a very quiet house enjoying being alone.
I hope you don't get the wrong idea, I love spending time with my children! It wasn't that long ago that I was teaching them myself as a home school Mom. But this year, I feel a need for order to return more than I ever have before. I can't help wondering if it has something to do with the amount of T.V that was watched in the last two months. It was draining and felt like such a waste of time. The weather didn't help and I was hoping that my dear children would see the difference for themselves. Some did and some are yet to feel it.
So a new start all around.
We will rededicate ourselves to living more fully, learning and growing
I hope you have a wonderful day! I plan to.
