New School Year

I know I always say this, but this summer flew by.  Usually I am ready for the kids to be gone and off to school by September, but this year I could've used another month with all my guys at home. Yesterday the two big boys started another year of school.  First and fourth grades, can you believe it?  Per our routine, the day before included setting out their new first day outfits, blessings from dad, and packing special lunches.  Tuesday morning brought a little bit of jitters, but a chocolate chip pancake breakfast helped that a bit.  I drove the boys to school and they headed in with smiles on their faces.  Mason and I returned home with frowns.  We already missed those little buggers!  Mason was pathetic sulking around the house looking for his playmates and I watched the clock too, waiting until it was time to go get them from the bus.  Mason waved frantically as the bus pulled up and the kids both came home with big smiles on their faces.  Great classes, great teachers all around.  They couldn't wait to go back today.  Mason started his final year at 4 R's this morning.  It's hard to believe that this is our last year with this little preschool.  He didn't miss a beat, picking up with his little friends from last year and having a blast.  What am I to do with all this free time on my hands?  Better start tackling that to do list...
