I'm tired.

Does back-to-school time wear anyone else out? I feel like I need to drink coffee and I am not even a coffee drinker. My son is starting his Junior year and this past week I have gotten all lesson plans and learning materials (he is homeschooled) ready through October. The older he gets, the more complicated some of the stuff he is learning gets. And I realize that some things I learned in school they never bother with anymore. Like in 5th grade I remember being very bored of diagramming sentences. Our teacher kept emphasizing this was something that we ABSOLUTELY had to know in order to get a job and get by in life. Y'all...I have never once diagrammed a sentence as an adult or solved an equation (I am not mathematical) or figured out a problem with a speeding train. So I feel old when I am seeing what high schoolers work on today. Time for some iced coffee!!!
