Back to school is a bittersweet time in my house. The kids are always excited to see their friends, but hate to see the Summertime lazy days go away. For Juleen, she's excited about all things High School, Cassie loves school and was excited to meet her teacher, and Aiden, well Aiden is more apprehensive as am I. Aiden's happy to see his best buddy more, but the thought of being overwhelmed with homework has him nervous. Last year he had so much homework (I'm not making this up), I had to have it modified because even with my help he couldn't keep up and it broke my heart to see his love for school start to fade. I'm not blaming his teacher, he and I worked together to help Aiden, but I am really hopeful that the homework this year is lighter. Seems like every teacher has a different thought process on the homework issue, so I'm crossing my fingers WE have a smoother year. Sending prayers for a happy, healthy, and stress-free school for you and your kids too. xo
How are you feeling about the new school year?
