A Collective Sigh

The grocery shopping is done. The laundry is done. The school lunches are packed. The school bags are ready by the front door and my kids are looking a wee bit downhearted. I, on the other hand, am feeling a distinctive spring in my step. The new term starts again at 8:50am tomorrow morning and I must say, as much as we love the family holiday time, I really think we are all ready to go our separate ways after breakfast.2014 January Back To School

The only possible wrinkle in the back-to-school plan is the fact that we are under a Freezing Rain Warning and that the flash freeze is supposed to hit just before the morning rush. A Snow Day during term is one thing. A snow day right on the heels of seventeen days of holidays is a little harder to get behind. I will tuck my kids into their beds tonight with fingers crossed that Mother Nature will be generous and that the new term will commence as planned.

I am always so delighted when holidays begin and so ready to get back into routine by the time they are winding down.

Is it just the wintry wind outside my window? Or are parents everywhere breathing a collective sigh of relief?sigh-of-relief
