Hello to back to school!

By SUZANNE PACEY

Hello to seeing their smiley faces at 6 a.m., and the exhausting look at the end of the day, after sports workouts.

Hello to tons of homework and no free time.

No more sleeping until noon and keeping me awake until after midnight.

No more smelly kids hanging all over my furniture playing videos games eating anddrinking me out of house and home.

Sarcasm aside, it’s nice when the kids are back on a routine.

Not sure about anyone else, but my kids seem to get bored after being home about two weeks and school time is always welcomed.

Don’t get me wrong — if I could take the summer off with them maybe my perspective would be different. I would love to load up the Winnebago and travel the country for 10 weeks with not a care in the world. But the reality is work gets in the way.

School time brings more structure to the household and I think everyone works better as a unit when there is structure and order. Plus, all their friends are all under one building now, so they should be excited, too, right?

But I am looking forward to the time when they are working all day and I’m the one that gets to sleep until noon! ■
