I have been out of school for a couple of weeks now, but today was the last day for my girls. The last day is always kind of bittersweet. It is hard to say goodbye to teachers and friends that are moving away or who you won't get to see all summer. My twins will be moving to a new school for kindergarten next year, so they will have to make all new friends and won't get to see their old teachers at all. One little girl was crying her eyes out at having to leave her Pre-K teacher.
Despite all of that, I am glad they are done. It will be so nice to have all of the girls in the same school next year--and in one right by our house. We weren't sure if K would be full-day or half, but today I confirmed it was full-day. Woohoo! I think my girls are ready for full day, and it will save me a bundle in child care expenses.
I am a little sad, though, because while my girls' summer is just getting started, I just gave away more of my free time. I was offered the job that I just interviewed for here in my little suburb. It is only 2 days/week, but that is in addition to the 2 days/week that I will be in the D.A.'s office. At least I get Fridays off. And a 10 minute commute will be really nice (compared to the hour drive to school). I think it will be a great opportunity--and hopefully it will help me make some local connections.
