Starting school

In less than a week, 5 of my kids will be going to school.

5, because Hadas graduated last year.

Matan and Lilach are starting high school (10th grade). Abigail is starting 1st grade, Nomi - kindergarten and Yirmi is going into pre-pre-school.

The summer has been chaotic, messy, loud, HOT, expensive and full of cool art projects. We're ending it with a going-back-to-school ice cream party (any excuse for a get-together).

I can't help thinking how ready I am for the kids to go back to school and for my life to go back to normal (normal?) - a few hours without screaming, screeching, whining and fighting each day... and, as thankful as I am to have each and every one of my precious children, I really can't wait.
