When my boys start school and I’m all excited for the first 2 hours of quiet and then I miss them.

They are learning so much (and not just book smarts) but there is also so much more to learn. Talking with my husband last night made me realize how important it is for us to still do fun projects and activities with them at home (if you don’t homeschool) We love doing science and art projects here at home especially because they don’t do anywhere close to enough of these in school. 

Learning doesn’t stop when I pick them up. They soak up information like little sponges and I love it.

Here’s to a new school year!

  1. So cute! School starts soon. I know I'll miss my boys when they are gone but for right now, I'm ready for a break!

  2. Mine start on Monday. I know I will miss them but I know they are ready for a break from each other. Two and a half months of being together 14 hours a day has made them a bit testy with each other.

    Jennifer – YES! Them not being together all day is the best thing about school!

    Thanks Sara!

    Shell we could all use a break now and then!
