Back To School 07-08
Eight middle schoolers in the top picture and the nine younger kids in the bottom picture. I'd dropped Sabrina off at Baby Yolie's house since pre-teens don't want to walk into school without a best friend...in our family it'd be an aunt and a niece.
Jack dissolved into tears, he's pictured clinging to Lily, if I have any regrets about him, I'd have not sent him to Pre-K. A teacher told us yesterday that her kindergartners who didn't go to Pre-K had done as well, if not better, than those that did go. I want that year back, I want a do-over. Tabby did go to Pre-K this morning, she's almost five, she very much wanted to go to school whereas Nando, who didn't go to Pre-K, in no way wanted to last year. New to our family, he desperately needed the two and a half years of stay-at-home mama time that I've been able to provide for him, today he was excited about going.
If only Edgar'd find a job, I'd have breathing room and six hours each day alone, something very therapeutic for me. I woke him up, sent him out the door like I've done every single day since he got fired.
