We had orientation today for our co-op and the kids did surprisingly well. It was an hour of information for parents, but the kids got to meet their teachers. Well, most of them. The fencing and dance teachers weren't there, but we'll meet them next week.

Next week when I drop all 3 kids off for the entire day.

Let me repeat that - the kids will be gone ALL day. ALL DAY. It's a little hard to fathom. A whole day, alone, without the kids. I'm insanely excited and feeling slightly guilty about the whole thing. While I'll be spending the day working, it just feels...indulgent. An entire day to myself. Lordy. I'll either get a ton of work done or absolutely nothing at all.

We have another co-op on Thursdays, but I have to remain there with them. They're just as excited about it and I would be too if I wasn't dreading the traffic in the morning. Bleh. BUT, it will be good to get out of the house and see other adults. Forget socialization issues for homeschooled kids, it's the moms who don't get much! (That's the dirty little homeschooling secret, btw. Our kids have a ton of socialization - WE don't.).

Here's hoping your Monday is going well and that your back to school experience is just as indulgent as mine.
