The first day of school is always a bitter sweet feeling for me. On one hand I'm sad they are going back. I like the company. I like sleeping in. I like going to bed LATE. I like doing things as a family. On the other hand. I like the freedom and alone time to get things done. I like the schedule. I like the structure.

My friend Heather posted this poem to her face book wall. I thought it was SO DARLING. I wanted to share it...
Twas the night before school started, when all through the town,
the parents were cheering...
It was a riotous sound!
By 8, kids were washed and tucked into bed...
Where memories of homework filled them with dread!
New pencils, new folders, new notebooks too!
New teachers, new friends...
Their anxiety grew!
The parents just giggled when they learned of this fright and shouted upstairs:
Go To Bed! It's a SCHOOL NIGHT!
