First day of school

Mitch and Ali went off to school this morning!
Ali was so excited she was literally counting down the minutes.
Mitch on the other had was wishing he could go back to bed.. He complained all morning that his tummy was hurting and he couldn't eat but I think it was just first day jitters! He started middle school this year so everything (once again) will be new. Crazy how the school system works here....
the kids go to elementary for K-4th then they move to a new school for 5th & 6th, then to intermediate for 7th  & 8th then off to high school.  I kindof like how they do it but it took me a lot of time to realize that it could be really good this way, the only thing that I don't like is that my kids won't be in school together again until high school!!!UGGGG









Now it's time for me to figure out what to do with my time!!!
(look for a job??)

No way! Exercise, play the piano, read a book, study the scriptures, volunteer at each of their schools, make dinners, clean the house, do laundry, and then hang out with your friends!! So much to do, so little time!

I agree with Jo. Volunteer is one of the top things I would do with my time.
