Actually, that is a line from the movie Finding Nemo, and I don't really agree with him. I am not one of those parents that can't wait for school to start again. I enjoy having my kids home with me and don't really look forward to sending them off to school. But, of course I don't have a choice and the first day of school has arrived.
It is strange to me to have two children in school this year. Morgan is starting 2nd grade and Victoria is starting kindergarten. Victoria seemed very excited about school, so we'll see how she makes out. She goes for a half day, so I'll be picking her up at 11:25am. I'm not totally convinced that she was ready to start kindergarten, but I spoke with her teacher a few weeks ago about my concerns and we're going to keep in close contact with each other. If she has to do two years of kindergarten I am okay with that, but she may catch up by the end of the year.
