Schools a coming!

We only have a few days left of summer vacation!  It is crazy! I will have all my children in school! I think I am going to cry.  I am so nervous for Seth to start school.  I have no idea how he's going to react.  Will he cry? Will he be happy? Will he fall asleep during class?  Oh boy, Monday will tell!  This is also the first year that Alex will be in the same school as one of his siblings.  He has never been in the same school at the same time with a sibling, ever!  I am happy he can finally be in high school with Kate.  If we had stayed in Maryland, Kate and Alex would have been in different high schools. Emily is the only child in a school all by herself.  Tomorrow we get to find out who Dane's and Karsten's teachers will be. For Seth we will find out Friday.  I will be the parent who has to be escorted off campus by the police because I can't let go!  I think I will be crying more than Seth.  But, we will survive!  This also means I can volunteer at the school, at all the children's schools!  I am excited for that.  Kate will be a freshman this year and she is so excited to start high school.  She has so much confidence, I am happy for her!  

Texas is still pretty hot!  I occasionally check the weather in Maryland, and long for cooler temps!  Ok, there was humidity, but it definitely was cooler.  When we went swimming in Maryland, Seth would always turn blue after about half an hour in the water.  He doesn't turn blue here!  So he spends a lot more time in the water.
