When school opens is a happy and a sad time for me. My kids are going to be away from me but I know they have to learn. My little one is going to be in 1st grade and my son is going to be in 5th grade, wow time sure goes by fast. They will be in school for longer hours but I know there will still not be enough time in a day. My son is already for school which makes me feel great. Or he maybe sick of seeing me all the time, hahaha. I am so proud of their progress.
Having them going to school has made them more independent. Which will help them progress in life's ups and downs.
