As a school lover myself, the past few years have been rough for me. Caroline has had a really hard time getting in the groove at school. She has made great friends and learned a lot but she has not loved it. In fact, at times, she has straight out disliked it.
This year, however, everything has turned. She has a fabulous teacher and all is right with the world.
The girls go back to school tomorrow after our winter break and I over heard the following earlier tonight:
Caroline: I am so excited to go back to school tomorrow!
Pause, while realizing what she just said…
Caroline: Oh, no not really. I’m not really excited.
Caroline: Ok, fine. I am excited. I guess I really am excited to go back to school.
And then I let out a big sigh of relief. Another school lover is born….
