    It’s too early to tell, but I don’t think I’m going to love it. I love spending time with my kids and being spontaneous – not stuck to a rigid time schedule. Half of me wants to home school. But, check back with me in five years or so . . . .

    No I do not at all. Maybe for the cool clothes that Bailey’s in to now. He’s gotta be in style. We went to day to the Tommy kids store and they have some really cool clothes for back to school. But no I get sad every year when he has to go back:( I’m still shocked that I will have a 3rd grader in a month and a half!!! And the time schedule SKL is talking about, I don’t miss that nor do I look forward to it. He’s excited and that does make me happy, he loves school.

    i’ll be the first to say I love back to school. I really strongly dislike the costs of back to school but with 4 kids who do nothing but fight all day every day I look forward to back to school to where they get away frome ach other for a time being and get to be with their friends.. When they come home and are worn out from doing something productive. This summer has been too hot for them to play outside and we are stuck home every day with out a car to do anything. They’ve been bored out of their minds..

    I like back to school also. My kids do much better on a schedule and my daughter enjoys school so she’s excited to go back. My kids also have been fighting a lot and Tosha’s right, they do come home worn out from doing something productive! I love my kids and spending time with them so don’t get me wrong!

    What’s a school??????

  6. When I was homeschooling all the kids, I hated “back to school” because it made me feel anxious that we were not following the herd. Now that two have joined the herd, it is fun to have an excuse to go up and down the stationery aisles and “accidentally” throw stuff for myself into the cart. But I am not big on change, so the thought of messing up the comfortable little summer routine we have established does not fill me with any kind of thrill. (Can you say “fuddy-duddy”?)

    I love back to school time of year! There is no secret about it here at my house. We went to our local Target store the other day and they were putting out all the school supplies. I told my girls what a beautiful sight it was! 🙂

    LOL Just a mom. I love it too but I love it for the routine of it. When everything is back to “normal.” I don’t even have kids at home but there’s something comforting to me about seeing the school bus’s and seeing kids on the playgrounds during lunch when I drive by. Also, by this time of the year, kids really are bored and I think the stimulation of school is good for kids and kids really do need and like the structure even if they won’t admit it.

    I haven’t had to say bye yet at the bus stop but I will like it. I think school is good for kids. Time off is also good but the routine of the same things and the enjoyment of learning is good for them. Bud will go to pre-school three days a week starting in Sept and he’s excited. We’ve already gotten the new backpack and clothes and shoes. I haven’t shown him a lot of his new things yet since I wanted to wait until after the baby came in case there are any “hard feelings” towards her, he’ll have some new stuff all his own.

    My first thought about this was not about the children returning to school at all. I love having my kids around, so I don’t look forward to the school year for purposes of having them gone most of the day. I do love the school year, however, for the sales on notebooks and pens. As a writer, I like to stock up.
