What a great morning. The kids woke up ready and eager for their day. Getting ready was a breeze and we walked the mile to school with little issue… other than the fact that their book bags were overfilled due to the stuff they have to bring on the first day. Matt and I ended up lugging much of their belongings most of the way.
As soon as the kids were off Matt hopped on the R to Manhattan for work and I took off on a run around Bay Ridge. I think I circled the entire thing! 5.5 miles!
This post does not include my thoughts about this day. I haven’t really had time to process them, but I will say we are confident this was the right choice for this season. We are good though I may have teared up when I got home from my run and they weren’t here. I just can not wait until the clock says I can go pick them up! I’m already counting down. (I’m sure I’ll get used to this but for now, I’m missing them!!)
All five of my kids are currently students.
I don’t know many people who have college students, a high school student, a middle schooler, and a Kindergartener!
Hayden and Carson are college students at Central Texas College. Hayden is taking his last two classes to finis his associates degree and Carson is taking his first four classes for the same degree. Bailey has only a few classes left to graduate high school so he’s my only student at the moment. I just love these people!
