It’s time to go buy school supplies and mourn the summer days as gone.
I find it sad to leave summer freedom, while yet so thick into the actual days of summer. Overall the school schedule is great, but I like starting school in September. Actually, I think I would prefer school start in October when it’s getting nice and cool. That would be wonderful.
I don’t get to choose though and school is definitely starting…like soon.
It is a bit harder watching Ivan start than it was when Owen started. Owen having been to pre-school may have been part of it, but I think it has more to do with the fact that seeing Ivan go, means I’m just that much closer to ALL three of them going and wow. That’s a little hard to take.
It’s going to be a good year. Ivan is excited and is changing so much. He is showing his aggressive side much more. Which makes me a little nervous as we start school, but I trust he will try very hard to practice self-control. He is also showing his clever side more and more. Little unexpected jokes pop out of his straight face, followed by smirks and knowing looks.
I call him my “Baby Tiger.” He is softness and cuteness all fuzzy and cuddly but ready to bare teeth and claws at any moment.
