Do you remember first grade? I went to elementary school for first grade at Montgomery Elementary School in DeKalb County, Georgia. My teacher was Mrs. Morrison. I thought she was the most wonderful teacher. For years, everytime I saw a Morrison’s Cafeteria, I thought of her.
My children start first grade on Monday. We met their teacher yesterday. In the 90 seconds or so we talked to her, she seems nice. BusyBoy and GigglyGirl are going to be in the same class again this year. They will be at different tables and in different groups but in the same class.
We took them to get new tennis shoes this week for PE. They got new backpacks and lunchboxes. BusyBoy got a new haircut. GigglyGirl got her ears pierced. It has been a busy week. I am going to miss them so much next week when they are not running around the house yelling, laughing, asking me a million questions.
I cannot believe I do not have babies any longer and that they are big kids going to first grade.
When do your children start back to school? Are you ready for it or not? Will you miss them or are you ready for them to be back at school?
