Back to school
Sydney started school on Tuesday and, unlike most Mom's, I'm not jumping for joy. I know it's important for her to attend school, so much that last year she missed only one day, but I feel like we have to be so structured for the next 10 months. No staying up late working in the garden, or leaving at 7 PM to head down to the river... we must be home to get ready for bed so I don't have a tired little girl in the morning. Sydney has an hour long bus ride and leaves here at 8:04, she doesn't arrive home until almost 4:00 PM so it's a long day for her and sleep is a priority. I'd seriously consider homeschooling again but, given the choice, I know she'd pick attending the school instead. Maybe next year won't be so bad because BOTH kids will be in school and I just might get more done during the day with NO interruptions... my "if I would have had him first, he would have been my last" 4 year old still keeps me pretty busy throughout the day! What is it with boys? Must they go, go, go, all day long?? I'm too old for this!
