Am I Crazy?

Please forgive the blog appearance.  I'm in the process of renovating.
Now, on to my post:

It's all over facebook:
"kids go back to school tomorrow-hurray!"
"I'm so excited that we go back to our routine tomorrow!"
"The last two weeks went fast but I'm so glad I can send the kids off tomorrow and stop coming up with things for them to do!"

Our district is different.  The kids start the second week of August so they can have three weeks off at Christmas.  That means while everyone else goes back to school tomorrow, we have one more week.


Am I crazy? Why is everyone so excited for their kids to go back to school? I love having Reagan home.  I've made sure she has been doing her reading and practicing writing stories, but we've just been enjoying family time.  The week before Christmas is always a whirlwind.  Then last week my mom had her stroke, so it feels like it flew by as well.  This week we are going to have lots of fun (and sleeping in!).  I have a few things in mind, but mostly we're going to just hang out.

I've often wondered if I would enjoy home-schooling because I genuinely love having my kids at home, but what I've realized is that I love having them home without obligations.  I like the separation of school and home.  Plus, Reagan really likes school.  I'm open to the option later, but for now, she is thriving on the social part and really learning more than I ever imagined! (You may remember me expressing concern over the lack of challenge she was receiving.  Rest assured that has been remedied and she is thriving with the challenges!)

This week it's just us girls! I'm so excited!


  1. With all the craziness you've had going on, it is no surprise you want her home with you! I think that's sweet. I am sad that Micah has to go back this week, but also thankful for the routine.

  2. Not crazy at all!! I loved more that ever my time home with my kids. I hated taking Cydney back to daycare today and the rest of us back at school. It just feels so good to all be home and doing stuff together. Enjoy your last week!!!!

  3. Are you crazy? In a word, yes. Kidding ... kinda. :P I think it may depend on the kids you get to stay home with. Some of us are home with noisy, hyper and moody little people who NEVER STOP EATING! I'm guessing.

  4. I love having Brenna home too. It's fun to have everyone around.
