First Day of School

Today was the 1st day back to school for my kids!
They were so excited with their new hair do's, clothes & back packs!
Julianna is in 5th grade this year, so she is feeling pretty SPECIAL
to be the oldest in the school!

It was bittersweet watching them run off with their friends
this morning..... I am happy that they are going back,
but I am sad that another summer is coming to a close.
Every year when school starts, it is a reminder to me
of how much my kids are growing up.....
they are not my little babies anymore & I have to let go....
at least a little bit!!

The good news??
I am pretty sure that an *almost empty* house means

Zoa what a SWEET photo of the kiddos!! I feel the same way every year.. it is still hard to let them go! :( But I know I gotta... just if they would slow down the growing part a bit.. it would be easier! LOL!!
Have a GREAT day!!!
