When Do Your Kids Go Back To School?

Well, my little darlin's go back to school tomorrow!! Which, means I get to go back to work also.(I'm hoping they keep me busy subbing this year.) TC is in 4th grade & Savannah in 1st this year. Things should be pretty interesting. We met their teachers yesterday & I think they are going to be really good. I'm trying not to think about next school year though. My baby boy will be going to middle school!!

Oh, I'm supposed to have a job interview some time next week too! It's for a childcare assistant at a school for unwed teen mothers who want to continue their education. The job is only 2 days a week & in the late afternoon so I'll still be able to sub & be on the same schedule as my kids pretty much.

Anyway, when do your kids go back or have they already started?

Crewsk, good luck with your interview next week! It sounds like it would be a wonderful job for you--and you'd be doing such a good service for those moms, too! Savannah's in first grade this year--yikes!

I think kids return to school the week before labor day around here. I'm always amazed at how early you guys start!

My dad wonders how I got so old. He probably wouldn't be able to tell you what year I am though.

But I start a week from tomorrow (August 23rd.)
I'm excited (since I'm the one going back to school), but I don't feel like I accomplished everything this summer that I wanted to.

My SO's grandchildren in Florida went back last Tuesday. They're in high school and middle school.

Good luck on your job interview Crewsk. My kids go back on the 21st and my oldest will be starting middle school (junior high) as well. My daughter, the middle one will be a 5th grader and my youngest (3 1/2 year old) will stay home with me and occasionally go to daycare when I go substitute at school.

My girls go back September 5th. Kate goes for an orientation session on the 31st since she is now in Junior High (grade 7). Madeleine goes back to the same school but has the bonus of having her favorite teacher once again for grade 5. WOOHOO!!

Good luck on the interview crewsk. I know they will hire you, you're a perfect pick.

Thanks so much for the support on the interview. I'm beyond nervous about it because I haven't had one in about 11 years!!

Middie, I know exactly how you feel!

PA, my neices & nephews went back August 4. I'm glad I had a little more time to get my kids ready.
