School starting is always a exciting and sad time in our house. We are excited over the return to days filled with our friends and learning new information, mastering new skills. We are excited for new shoes - if we need them. We operate on a needs based of adding clothing and shoes to wardrobes. We are sad for the long lazy days of summer that are behind us. I am sad to have to pick up making lunches and policing school tool and homework and bedtimes. although there is less of that these days as my kids age and take on many of those responsibilities themselves. This is the last year for my middle child - he is a senior, 8th grade for the youngest and 2nd year of college for my oldest. Lots of college exploration headed our way this fall.
