Dream du Jour

I can't believe summer is over. My oldest began grade one this morning and he will be staying for lunch. It feels kind of wierd that I won't see him until it is time to pick him up at the end of the day. (I am also feeling a little guilty that I won't be picking him up for lunch like some of the other stay at home moms are doing. But my "excuses" are that lunch recess is a time when he can play with his friends [socialization] and it also conflicts with when I need to pick up my other son from preschool.) I hope that he loves school - that is my "dream du jour". Of course I want him to do well, but if he doesn't like school it is twelve years of misery minimum!!

On to the cards....
