I decided that we are going to start school on August 15th. Only one month away!!! I am so excited I can hardly wait! B on the other hand still thinks that school is a bad word. If you mention it he runs and hides. When I told him that we are going to start school two weeks before the public school ... he was a little apprehensive. But after I explained the benefits of starting earlier he seemed to come around. He said OK then ran and hid just in case I decided to start talking about school even more. I don't know if his feelings about school will ever be excited, like mine. But I know that they will get better. Hopefully by the end of this year I will be able to mention school and not get the obligatory 'I hate school' response.
However... me ... I am thrilled. Sure I'm nervous about starting because it is new and unknown. I know that it is going to difficult and there will be days I want to pull my hair out. I know that there will be days when I wonder if I can really do this. Nevertheless I know that it will all be SO worth it. And that is why I am excited!!
