That is what we say every day at drop off. I say "Clear eyes, full hearts" and the kids say back to me "can't lose"! It sets us up for the day..... It's like our cheer!
Today is the First day of School. It is WAAAAAY too early for them to be going back. LAUSD had to get the whole state on the same schedule though so we had to go back early. The high school and grade schools were all on different schedules. Meh. My kids are excited. I am sad. I'm always sad when they go back to school. I hate that the school has them for more hours in the day than I do. I hate that the year goes by so very fast and they are one year older. I hate that life is going by so fast and I vow every year to enjoy it more and forget to do it until the beginning of the school year. I hate that I question parenting as I send them out the door. I hate that I cant' protect them. Are the going to behave? Are they going to make friends? Will their teacher understand them and "get" their crazy wonderful personalities? Will they be good examples? I hate the new school year! BUT I have no choice in the matter so I have to turn my frown upside-down and LOVE it! SO I will bake our traditional COOKIES! Pumpkin Chock Chips. for after school! (Normally saved for Sept when school normally starts.....and the temps aren't 107 but hey we do what we gotta do!) AND we will make some fun back to school packets for the teachers and secretaries...... a little love will help later and service always makes me feel better! Now for the good part pictures of my babies!
BACK TO SCHOOL 2012
CLEAR EYES, FULL HEARTS, CAN'T LOSE!
Look at this smile! ....... How do you let it go out the door!? With a great big hug and a high five!
