The older children are off to school today. We had a big bang-up dinner bash last night, complete with a slip-n-slide, a kiddie pool at the bottom of the slide and water balloons. And there was food. Lots and lots of food. Everyone went home early, because everyone had a little one starting school today. It was great fun, a perfect way to end the summer.
I only cried a little, when the now-third grader demanded that we go see his second grade teacher for a hug, before he went off to third grade. It was very sweet, and, fortunately, the second grade teacher is quite used to seeing me tear up. So all is well.
And now we have one. Who told me last night that today, when we were just three, that we would go to the donut factory, the playground, and then we would do math. So we could help the older two with their math homework.
