Today is the first day one of my children has attended public school. In some ways it was a hard decision to let him go, and in other ways it was tremendously easy. But most importantly, DH and I think it's what's best for Brendan (child #4), and he was eager for a new experience. This morning he awoke on his own at 6 a.m., I rolled out about 15 minutes later and we had a nice time chatting together over breakfast and last minute preparations. At 7 he was out the door to catch the bus with the neighborhood kids. He's in 9th grade, just starting high school.
About 2:40 he was back home again, excited about his day. The first day is always great, lol! He has a little algebra homework. It'll be interesting to see how long the excitement lasts.
I've been doing a little blog reading today, stitched a bit at lunchtime, and have begun to enter the lessons for the new homeschool year into my computer program. This year I have only ten classes to enter! Piece of cake!
Thanks for your kind comments on my smocking and cards. Singular Stitches was wondering if I made my Christmas cards and I do try to, altho some years I'm just too busy for it. It's great fun tho and I really love to mass produce things! Kids, meals, cards, etc. lol!
