Well, I can’t let the whole month of September pass without acknowledging back to school time for the kiddos . This year was particularly special because I have a kindergartner and second grader. That means everyone is in the same spot for the first time ever. It feels like a big milestone as a mom.
Reid going to kindergarten has been bittersweet. It is so exciting for him to be at big school. He is thrilled to do all of the things Lacey has done and I can tell he thinks he is big stuff. He is proud and challenged in such a good way.
However, kindergarten is an adjustment. It wears them out like nothing else. My even keeled boy is all kinds of cranky by the end of the week. It has taken a few weeks but finally he is settling in and as a family the routine is feeling more normal.
Second grade has been a seamless transition which I’m thankful for. Lacey is excited to have her brother at school but slightly annoyed at having to share her special place. She has made it clear that she is the seasoned veteran and we all need to remember that.
September often feels like a blur and survival mode is the mantra. October is such a fun month in comparison so I’m ready for the next chapter!
