T’was the night before school starts…

My oldest four children begin a new adventure tomorrow morning. Away from my watchful eye.

Like me, they are nervous and anxious. But mostly they are just excited, I think.

They’ve been in bed for hours already, getting a good night sleep before the big day, no doubt dreaming of their first day of school away from home. A day I wasn’t sure we’d ever see.

At least, I hope they’re sleeping soundly, and not tossing and turning like I know I will be.

Yup, I’m a nervous wreck on this night before school starts.

And, I’m not even the one going off to school.
