The first day of school is always so hard on my heart. However, I wasn’t sure I was going to be all that sad this year…..and that’s because this summer we were home more than usual (because of baby Max being so small), so we had a lot more fussing, arguing, and messes this summer. And, well, a little less patience from a sleep-deprived mom. So, I’ll be honest, I was craving a little structure and to finally be able to scoot my little ducklings out the door and back to school. ((sigh))
However, once the first day of school arrived last Friday, they suddenly all seemed so small. And I completely forgot about my exhausted days from this past summer. I kinda wanted to hoard them to myself for a few more weeks. Or maybe even a few more years. Gaahh, these kids grow way too fast!
But ready or not…Ellie, Connor, and Chloe were SO EXCITED for their first day of school!
