It's a decision that took two years to make. And it's one we're solid on, but that doesn't take away the fact that it hasn't yet been done by us and therefore I'm certain it'll be perfect and I'll make no mistakes and they're going to be brilliant.
I am a little nervous .. of the unknown, of my expectations, of others' judgements [even though I should not care what others think. When I grow up, maybe I won't]. But at the same time there is a lot of excitement too.
And so when they asked if we could start school this morning I said yes! We didn't just jump in and start a full day. I suggested we do one subject just to get a feel for how it's going to go. And it was great. They both wanted to try math and for an hour I went to each kid's room and helped/guided them. It was wonderful. I felt elated and they were confident and thrilled to be students.
The schoolmarm is ready. Bring on the year.
Here in our land of Arkansas we enjoyed a tax-free weekend on certain items. Clothing fell into this category and since it's back to school time we decided to get Edith a new diaper. Smirk.
Here's the little one.
Thank you, Arkansas, for losing some tax money so that we can have a little style.
