I don’t know about all of you but I am NOT looking forward to summer ending. Am I crazy for feeling this way? Most people would say yes, yes I am absolutely nuts for not wanting my kids to go back to school. But maybe some of you can relate.
I have this strong feeling that we just haven’t quite finished up with our summer fun. Yes, I’m excited for my kids to start a new school year but I’m also kinda sad that we will no longer get to hang out and make spontaneous decisions to go to the pool or drive into Washington, D.C. for the day.
This summer is so very different than others. I’ve never felt this way before. I’ve always been chomping at the bit for the first day of school and now I’m finding that I just want a little more time with my big kids; to soak up every ounce of that summertime feeling, right to the end.
Do you think it’s a sign? Maybe I should homeschool 😬 I’ve actually thought about that before. I mean I am getting my degree in education so I can teach other people’s kids so why not teach my own? 🤷♀️ Maybe that’s not the sign I’m getting but I can tell there’s a sign somewhere in there.
I’ve been far behind on back to school shopping and just keeping track of all the back to school activities the school puts on. Here’s some perspective, my kids start school on Thursday and I didn’t realize that Back to School night and Open House were the two days before until last week 😳 Yikes!!! School is definitely not on my mind, as you can tell.
I’m also in denial about school starting back up for myself. I don’t think I’m mentally or physically ready to get back into the grind of school work.
Are there any other parents out there who feel the same? Please tell me I’m not the only one who still wants my kids around for a little longer. I guess either way it’s coming so Happy Back to School season! May you’re kids wake up not so grumpy, get worn out at school and go to bed early/on time 🤞🏻
