I Can't Wait!

School registration was today! That means only a couple weeks until school starts and I will have a schedule again. Oren has really made progress in reading. I had him read the computer rules agreement so he would pay attention, and he only needed a little help. I can't believe how grown up he is getting!

He is all registered for 1st grade now, and they will post the classes on the 20th so we will find out who his teacher is. Nathan is all set for the preschool too. I just have to fill in the meal application to see if we qualify for free or reduced lunches. I think we will, the military doesn't pay a lot. And there are 5 of us...

They are both very excited to go back and see friends and learn new things. And I am excited for the break. 1st grade is all day, and the preschool is in the afternoon during William's naptime. There is a bus that will take Nathan to school and back, which takes time, so he will be gone a little longer than just school time.

I love my kids, but after having 3 little ones at home is quite a challenge. I enjoy the break and cherish the afternoon when they are both home instead of being exhausted by then. So here's to a new school year!

HOORAY! That is so exciting! I really wish I had that kind of break to look forward to! Imagine all the things you will get done!

Yay for getting a break! I'm glad the boys are excited to go to school, that makes it so nice.

Emily's school starts on August 18. It just keeps getting earlier and earlier. She will be gone all day for 1st grade (same as Oren). A bittersweet for me, since she's my last one. A small part of me wants to have her home longer, but I have to admit I'm looking forward to the 6 1/2 hour block of time I'll have for getting things done! Yeah for school!

I always used to look forward to the beginning of school and then to the end of it. Summers were nice to have them all home again all day. Enjoy them while they're little. They don't stay that way for long.

How exciting. I imagine that will be really nice. And that is nice that they're excited to go to school. Can't believe it's this soon already.
