As a mother I feel like I wear a lot of different hats.
A role model.
And today, as the sun rose on the first day of school, a cheerleader.
He loves when I jump on the bed to wake him up, really he does…
And why not start the school year with some enthusiasm?
You know, get it going with some real pizazz!
The school year always brings mixed feelings (read last year’s back to school post here), but the time has come to say goodbye to lazy days at the beach and late nights catching bugs. We welcome fun times with old friends and new, days filled with learning and…well, probably catching some bugs too.
So as I watch my oldest two kids walk through the doors of school today, embarking on their 3rd and 1st grade years respectively, you can bet I’ll be cheering them on…and look, they’re just as excited as I am.
What about you? Have your kids started school yet? How do you do the first day of school – cheers or tears? Are you a home-schooling warrior? Leave me a comment and let me know. I’d love hearing from you!
Oh, and feel free to share your back to school photos on my Facebook Wall! Remember mine from last year?
