And They're Off

First day of school.  So much to look forward to, so much to watch out for.  It's a tricky time in our family's life.  Teenagers.  Need I say more?  I love them to pieces, yes, they make me crazy at times, and me them.  But I know one thing, I wouldn't want to live without them.  They are my pride and joy, even when they screw up.  Hey, perfect is for angels!  My parting words, "make me proud"  and "text me."  Welcome to the 21st century.

And now I'm off.  Before I think too hard on how great it was to have my kids' ears for a bit.  Before I think how much I will miss feeding them from my kitchen (even though it gets tiresome).  Before I think about how fast the time is passing.

Weren't they just learning to tie their shoelaces?

Best of luck to all you students and parents of students this school year.

remember all these good times because they go by so fast. I remember you in high school sitting on my patio getting a tan. You were just a little older then your daughter. Have a great time with them always.

Thank you for the reminder Paulette. And thank you for being a Mom I could go to when I needed somewhere safe to land. Hugs to you!
