Some parents "can't wait" until school starts, which I really don't understand that concept as we have had a fun summer. Our kids will be in first grade and second grade, and they're thrilled because they got the teachers they both wanted. The photo below is from last school year, as they haven't started school yet.
I'm a stay at home mom, so with having a 3 month old I'm use to getting up by 6:40am with him to nurse and staying awake most of the time, because I can't sleep once awake if it's light out usually. Their school year bedtime aside from Wednesday nights due to church activity known as AWANA is at 8pm, and up at 6:40am. During the summer time, their bedtime was at 9 - 10pm, and they would wake up between 7:45 - 8:30am depending on the day. They keep counting down until school starts, because they can't wait to be back with their friends again, and to start Cub Scouts and Daisy Scouts again, in September or October!
We can't eat lunch with them though except for their birthdays, so that's a bummer but that's the school rules. It's been very humid, but now is finally starting to cool off a bit, so it will be hoodie season before I know it! They can wear shorts to school for a short time before they say pants and jeans only from now until April or May. We love their school and teachers.
