Twelve days until school starts.
When the summer began, I must admit I thought by the time we reached this point I would be celebrating, others summers that was the case, but I am not.
I am mourning... and nervous... and dreading.
Mourning the loss of easy mornings, of lazy days in our pajamas, of last minute trips to the beach.
Nervous about Alex being gone all day and eating lunch at school. Nervous if Lucas will have good friends in class or if he will get picked on or bullied.
Dreading the homework.
Why is there so much homework? I know most schools have homework but as I talk to other parents I think ours is more and I have heard 3rd grade is even worse.
But they are excited... they created a chain.
Lucas has been telling Alex all about school when you are in "a grade" and all of the ins and outs.
They like school, they do well in it and Alex makes friends so easily.
So I hide my mourning, I hide my nerves and dread and put a smile on my face as we count down the days until school starts.
Time goes too fast.
