Grade School Open House was tonight

D and I went in and met his teacher, turned in some of the paperwork (picked up more), put his supplies away, signed up for different things, and talked to a few people. 

I'm dreading the start of the school year.  My kid is a good student, doesn't have issues with other kids, likes school etc.  It's me.  I like summer at home with the kids, reading, playing, exploring, etc.  School starts and it is all a mad rush of busy, busy, busy.

I agree... I enjoy having my kids home with me.  I think I may have been the only parent that is commenting that I'm not ready for my kids to go back to school.  I wish summer vacation was several more weeks.  I think part of it is also because my daughter's birthday is right at the start of school... this year it was the 2nd day of school.  It's tough to celebrate a birthday and get ready for school to start... just as I imagine it would be tough to have a kid with a birthday around a holiday.

We are getting in to the swing of things. J's homework is heavy, but we knew that would be the case with the subjects he is taking and not having a study hall of any type. He has a 20 minute lunch period and that is it.

D has had minimal homework. He has to learn a new program for Spelling class. I'm unhappy about that, but it is what it is.

How are you adjusting?
