The difference between school and life? In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson. ~Tom Bo
If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers. ~Edgar W. Howedett
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education. ~Mark Twain
You can get all A's and still flunk life. ~Walker Percy
Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. ~Albert Einstein
If you think education is expensive, try ignorance. ~Attributed to both Andy McIntyre and Derek Bok

PS I'm not really that excited about the kids going back. Now I have to get up at 6AM when all summer long I had been sleeping until 7:30 at least. I also will miss the kids. I am a stay at home mom and this is the first year I will have no kids all day long. Last year my daughter only went half day. But what am I going to do all day. I can only clean for so long every day. I am very excited for my kids though. They all seemed ready and eager to be back. I think it had to do a lot with seeing their friends again. My youngest is in Kindergarten. My middle son is in first grade (which = real school) and my oldest is a big time 3rd grader.
Happy First Day of School!

I proud new owner of a 2009 Nissan Sentra. This weekend we traded in my clunker 1994 Town and Country for my beautiful new car. This is my first NEW car and I am so excited. I am no longer a mini van Mama. Not that there is anything wrong with driving a mini van. I was just SO over it. I mean I am still only 27 years old and wanted something a little COOLER. Not to mention it gets 33 mpg. That's a big jump up from the van. I will miss all the room the van had to offer and the fact that I could separate the kids but I'll get over it!
