For the past week or so, with a few other parents, I’ve been working on Cam’s grade 5 graduation. Getting t-shirts ordered, food and music figured out.
It’s a good distraction from the fact that the one and only year that my children will all be in the same school together is coming to an end as Cam heads off to middle school next year.
Our school starts full day kindergarten next year. When I registered her for JK our school was not slated for the ELP (Early Learning Program) until her grade one year, so she would miss it by a year. I was not mentally prepared for her to go to school full time a year earlier, but she is.
It’s been 11 years.
I’ve been feeling very sentimental about it.
That won’t be happening. Our debt has caught up to us which is kind of sucky, but these 11 years I’ve been home with my kids have been truly priceless.
With all three kids in school full time I will need to get a job. As much as that scares the absolute hell out of me, it also excites me. A new chapter.
Until then I have four more months of my kids being all mine.
And me being all theirs.
