And How

He's almost gone!

I'm having a seriously hard time coming to terms with the fact that Penn is going to start Kindergarten in a month.  Part of me really wants to home-school like I had originally planned, but part of me is also considering finding childcare of Jude and Anna for one or two days each week so I can have some time to myself ("ME time," you know, like time for uninterrupted cleaning, laundry, working out...selfish things like that--haha).  Mostly, I've just been trying not to think about it much, but when I finally flipped the calendar over yesterday, THIS little beauty was staring me in the face:
Kindergarten Supply List
Back in June when I registered Penn for Kindergarten, I taped his supply list to the calendar on August so I wouldn't lose it before tax-free weekend.  I kind of wish I had.

As a mom of school-aged kid, I figure I'm going to be pretty awesome or pretty annoying.  Penn, on the other hand...he's just going to be awesome...I know it.  See for yourself:)


  1. Isn't it crazy how quickly they grow up? Penn will be an awesome little kindergartener!

    I hear you on the me-time. Colin is starting "school" next week so that I can clean the house and start working in my classroom. Maybe I will toss a workout in there, if I can remember what exactly that is...

  2. I can only imagine how you feel about Penn starting school. I know he is going to love it & be great at it, though! I wouldn't blame you one bit for having some "me time." Your health and sanity is just as important as anything else. :-)
