Last Week of Summer Vacation

There are so many wonderful things I love about Fall.  Pumpkins, apples, cinnamon spiced baked goods, the State Fair, my birthday, the changing color of the leaves and cooler weather.  But, I always feel a tinge of sadness as this time of year approaches.  Why?  Because the kids are headed back to school.  Call me crazy, but I just love having my little chickadees at home during the Summer!  Nice and safe in Momma's nest!  I love our long, lazy Summer days.  I love keeping our own schedule and not having our mornings and evenings so rushed.  And to add to the emotions of seeing Summer come to an end, my BABY will be headed off the Kindergarten!  Where, oh where did the time go? 

As the new school year begins, there are some things to look forward to.  Seeing old friends, making new friends, learning new things.  The kids are excited, especially Reed.  He'll finally be able to go to school with his big sister and big brother!  A new season approaches, time to embrace it.  But, I am looking forward to the start of next Summer! ;)

  1. The new design looks nice. :)
    I can't say I'm ready for the fall, so you are in a more positive mindset than I am!

  2. Sally went back to school today...and I hate it!! I am going to miss those carefree summer days too. Hope the kids have a great school year.
