It is Chandler's first day of school today but it is also the first day of his last year at elementary. This is quite a milestone because I have had a child at Riverton Elementary for the past 18 years! Wow! So, this will be my last year of elementary school as well.
I like year round school because I like the flexibility of when I take my vacations. I like that my children don't get bored during an overly long summer. I even like that Chandler's schedule is different from all of his siblings because it allows he and I the flexibility to spend one-on-one time together. He enjoys different activities from his siblings so the different schedules is perfect.
However, I still didn't quite feel ready for him to go back to school this year. We have had a lot of fun - he has played in two soccer tournaments and we've been to Seven Peaks Waterpark once a week on average. He's gone fishing and swimming and played games. He ran track and ran a 5K race. He's spent lots of time with cousins.
This morning I gave him a bag full of smarties candy that read "Hey Smartie Pants - good luck on the first day of school!" Chandler laughed and was quite pleased with it. I also made him one of his favorite breakfasts - cinnamon muffins and peach smoothies.
