Hurricane Irene blew through our area on Saturday night, and with it blew out our power for about 20 hours, and with it the sureness that school would be starting today. Thankfully we had no other damage, and most of the area damage were tree limbs that fell onto yards, and lost power.
We got an early wakeup call from the school district saying that school was in fact on, and despite some hiccups, and an overly energetic 9 year old, everyone is out the door and off to school.
My kids are all in school for the first time in nearly 14 years, and I’m both ecstatic and terribly sad to not have these little people around me all day.
The little guy is only half day, so at least I can hold onto my baby for a little bit longer. 😉
Excuse me while I go cry in my cup of coffee.
Disclosure: 13 year old not pictured, because well, he’s 13.
