Back to School

Our house is empty again during the days, except for me and the dog. Everyone is back in school since last week.

As I made S’s bed yesterday and saw her computer sitting there, I thought back to last year when both kids were at home, attending school virtually. It mostly went well, both kids were old enough (5th and 7th grade) to handle things on their own, with some tech support from me here and there.

But it was still stressful, mostly making sure everything was running correctly and the kids were staying on task, not distracted by YouTube, TV, etc. Not to mention I was trying to get work done also.

I’m thankful they are back in the classroom, (hopefully it stays that way…knock on wood). But I do miss having them around, being able to eat lunch together and just having them here”.
