This is it...
Our last full week of summer.
Next week Lucas will start kindergarten again (read about that here).
And then on the 16th, Alex will start preschool three days a week.
I have mixed feelings about it all:
Pro: shopping with one baby instead of three kids will be so much easier
Con: getting up and getting everyone ready so it will be just Ryder and I is not going to be fun
Pro: Lucas is so smart and excited to make new friends
Con: Lucas is also very anxious, which in his world leads to melt-downs, disobedience and well completely losing it
Pro: Alex is so excited about being in preschool all by herself
Con: she is 3 (going on 16). Am I really ready for my girl to be gone so much?
Pro: we are taking the next step in life, entering a new stage
Con: we are taking the next step in life, entering a new stage
So as we enjoy this last week of summer, I am trying to keep hope that it will all work out. I know there will be challenges at times; I am trying to mentally prepare myself to get a few calls from the school... But if we just keep trying and keep working and keep doing the things we parents do day in and day out, we will persevere. We will make it and we may even enjoy the ride a bit.
