Today was the first day of school for my older two. My oldest started middle school. It was so weird watching him get on the bus. I can vividly remember middle school and all the emotions I had then. I was scared starting a new school with new people, having to get myself back and forth between classes, and heaven forbid, no recess. I was and now he is, being forced to grow up just a little bit. I said a few extra prayers for him this morning, and for me to cope with him getting just a little closer to leaving the nest.
On the financial front, it's day 5 of the no spend month. The only thing I've bought are groceries so far, so I'm doing well. The beginning of the month is always the easiest. I tend to loose my momentum at the end of the month, though I resolve not to this time.
