Bright Side Friday - School's Back
Since I work in an elementary school, I am very lucky that I don't work over summer break. I thoroughly enjoyed being with my two boys all summer long. We had a great summer. We spent alot of time outside when it wasn't too hot. We had quite a few picnics. We slept in a few times. They both learned to swim. We participated in the library reading program. We had a very full and satisfying summer. Even though I enjoyed all the unstructured time, I am quite content to have the school year starting again. The boys are excited about school and really enjoy going to the after-school program, which alleviates guilt for me since I can't pick them up right after school. Their bedtime has moved up a little bit so that they are rested for school, which gives me some more time in the evenings to collect myself and get organized for the next day. We're falling back into a comfortable pattern of purposeful activities. I'm looking forward to hearing about all the new things they'll be learning and all the things we'll have to talk about. Happy Friday of the first week of school!
What is your Bright Side? Are you ready for school to start?
