20 Days Left...

We're starting the countdown to the first day of school. I'm amazed at how fast this summer went by. Maybe it's because I know what's coming next. Or more that I don't know what comes next.

Little Man is finally excited about going to Kindergarten, after months of telling people he wants to be home schooled. He finally admitted he was nervous about school because he had nothing to take for show and tell. How funny kids can be sometimes!

We found out yesterday that he is going to school choice #1, the same one grandma teaches at. So that calmed his nerves a great deal. She even took him to visit the building and check out the library, which he didn't want to leave. He called to tell me there were "thousands of books, Momma, maybe even a million. And I get to read them."

Knowing he is excited is giving me a little bit of relief. Now I just need to finish school shopping so that he's ready to go in a few weeks.

So now we have 20 days left. 20 days to enjoy the sun, 20 days to be loud and act crazy, 20 days to have as much fun as we possibly can.

I am out doing some blog hopping and came across yours. Didn't the summer go quickly! Most of the schools here in Memphis started this week. Enjoy the time while you can.

I am hosting a carnival tomorrow on 5 Things Friday on 5 Favorite Summer Activities. Join in if you can. Blessings!

I think going back to school is so exciting! (I mean I did when I was a kid...although I do now too,lol) All those cool school supplies, back packs, lunchbox! LOVE shopping for that stuff.

My Maggie is starting school in a couple of weeks also;) She is going to VPK, only 3 hours a day five days a week. She is so nervous also because she has never been to school before! We are going to orientation before she starts so I am hoping that will calm her nerves a little;) Hope your son does well in kindegarden;)
