I have to admit to mixed feelings this morning as I took BOTH my little ones to our local neighborhood elementary school. Half of me is internally jumping for joy at the extra time I'm going to have to myself; the peace and quiet! The other half of me feels I have closed a chapter of my life - a chapter I *loved*, and am not sure I'm ready to close yet.
My feelings aside, the kids were excited, especially Ella, who couldn't sleep last night as if she were anxiously awaiting a visit from Santa Claus himself. (Despite the way she looks in the picture.) They both had a good first day, and are looking forward to their second day, so I claim that a success.
