Thankful Thursday: Back to School!

3 years ago

I cannot be the only one…who is thankful their child has gone back to school after a long, long winter holiday.

 

I could almost hear the sighs of relief as weary mothers and overwhelmed fathers dropped their children off at the schoolyard.  I could see the corners of the parents mouths turned up, readily offering a smile, caused by the knowledge that for at least the next five hours their children were using their energy for good instead of evil (learning and playing instead of leaving their toys on the stairs and pulling their little sister's pig tails).  I witnessed relieved parents on the verge of high fiving each other as they made their ways to their cars in the parking lot, never so excited to head to the office, to manage the wash machine, or simply sip a cup of coffee uninterrupted.

 

On this Thursday, I am thankful that Sonny Boy has returned to school to be embraced by his friends and teacher...please visit my blog to read the rest of my reasons for gratitude this Thursday: I Cannot Be The Only One...
