Today is the day I have been waiting for! It's the first day of school! Finally my boys are reunited at the same school (yet only for one year). I cannot believe I have two middle schoolers. (I don't even want to address the fact that Grant will be in high school next year).
This is a bittersweet day for sure. I am over the moon we are back into a routine and they are reunited with their friends but on the other hand it is a big milestone in their lives that my boys are growing up and becoming young men. So I do everything we can to treasure this time because before we know it they will be off to college, moving out and getting married.
We really rocked out Summer 2019. We had such a fun summer with a lot of activities including a family trip to Lake Chelan, Grant travelling to D.C. for a school trip and Jackson and I took an overnight trip to Vancouver B.C., his first time to Canada.
For the boys they are looking forward to a big year, both academically and in sports . Today marks the first day baseball tryouts for their middle school and I pray they make the same team.
I joke when people ask me if I am ready for school to start that the moment the boys get on the bus at 6:40am I will have popped a bottle of Champagne. In reality, I am crawling back in bed. I have cleared my schedule for the day to just have a Mom Back to School Day. Something I highly recommend to all moms.
