So I've been "absent" the last couple of Mondays ... so sorry. I've been engrossed in a good book, not yet finished, but getting there. I've set a deadline and am working night and day to meet it. I'm not sleeping much these days, but the kids are back in school and all is well. I love sending the children to school and getting some time to myself! The kids love it too. I think we all just need some time away from each other occasionally - or daily.
I do love my kids and think school came all too early this year. What ever happened to waiting until after Labor Day??? Oh well. Summer is officially over and that means no more trips to the lake in the middle of the week. We are all in mourning. At least we still have the sunshine.
One thing I have to vent about though are the back to school nights. Has anyone else ever wanted to raise their hand to correct a teacher grammatically during one of those things? I must admit that notes from the teacher also set me on edge. At one particular elementary my children attended years ago, I actually took a red pen and corrected it and sent it back with my son. I still remember some of the mistakes that grated on my nerves - explaination???
Ah well, even school teachers are entitled to their errors, but after several notes filled with misspelled words, dangling participles and more, somebody had to take action!
