Guess what!

School starts tomorrow.


Yes, you read correctly.  School in Hawaii starts August 1st.  Most of my brain is still reeling from that revelation.
“WHAT?!! August first?! So… since it always feels like summer here they figure they don’t actually need to have a summer break?”

School starts tomorrow.

My fellow mothers and neighbors have been looking forward to this eagerly.  Except for the ones who are homeschooling, too.  I don’t know how they’ve been feeling, but…

I’ve spent the last week feeling like I’m at the beginning of a roller coaster. You know, that part where it’s going very slowly, very steeply uphill. The sun is in your eyes, you can’t quite see what’s coming next.  You’re listening to the track underneath you go, “Chink! Chink! Chink! Chink!” and you’re thinking, “I’m not so sure about this.”

Yesterday I crested the top, saw the track ahead of me, felt the momentum about to begin, and I agreed with those former thoughts.  “Stop the train, I wanna get off!”

Great.  Now I’ve got to go find pictures, don’t I?  Good thing I love you or I’d never take the time to do that.

This is the part right before you go flying down the hill, faster than fast, and with your hair flying and your stomach flip-flopping you scream, “I WANT MY MOMMY!!!!!”

That post will be coming next week, I’m sure, because –

School starts

    Yes, I definitely voted for the last one! And THEN after all that, does the “Dance of Joy!” 😉 Haha, I will never forget that. Wouldn’t it be beyond awesome to do it again? 🙂

    Doin’ the ‘HAPPY DANCE’ with you! Everybody sing with me now, “You can do it, you can do it…!”

    You’ll do great. Just remember to cut yourself some slack while you’re doing it, since you’ll be doing the job of two (wait–three?) teachers all by yourself, PLUS all the mom stuff. Definitely slack-worthy.
