Today is back to school for my daughter. She is in 7th grade and starts middle school today. I am going through the whole trauma of my baby growing up. Did I mention that this is the first time she can wear makeup too? Yes, my little girl will be wearing makeup to school...Lord help me. Granted, she is only allowed to wear light color eyeshadow and no foundation or eyeliner is allowed (gotta save something for high school).
I must say she is a little excited about going to her new school though. She got accepted into a special academic program at a school that we are out of area for, so she will not be moving on with all her friends from elementary school. She does know a few kids that are going to this school (mostly from soccer), so at least she will know some there. That bad news is that I will have to drive her to and from school every day. The closest bus stop is 4.7 miles from the house and the school is only 6.6 miles away, so I will be driving her. Seems like I really have to find a way to work from home if I am going to be carting 2 kids to 2 different schools everyday.
My son however does not start school until the 22nd. I guess I get to spend some time with him, which will be really nice.
