first day a success

This time last year
i was miserable.
I had several children
who on the first day of school
had meltdowns.
I remember after i had dealt with one
another one started in--
and i looked at them and asked
"if they really wanted to go there?"
To which that child stopped
and waited till the next day
to schedule their melt down.
It was a horrible first few days of school
and all i can say
What a difference a year makes.
All came home happy today.
Pleased with their teachers and classes.
I realize it is a tad early
to declare the year a success--
but I feel we are on the right track.

Don't limit yourself.
Many people limit themselves to what
they think they can do.
You can go as far
as you mind lets you.
What you believe,
you can achieve.

You're a good mama and those are some lucky kids.

I was just thinking how I should take a picture of my first day of school tomorrow. Ha ha.

It's totally never ending for me, isn't? All these first days. And guess what? It's been okay to turn the calendar to August. I'm turning a corner too... yup, what a difference a year makes. Love you girl!
