'First Day of School'


My son just sent me this cute picture from his cell phone! Cailee and Nora started school this morning. Cailee is starting 5th grade and Nora will be in 1st.

I called to wish them a super day. This really brings back memories from when my boys were little.
The first day was always exciting......and then about a week into it they were sick of school and it was a battle to get them out of bed! ha

I just can't believe that next year, my first granddaughter will already be out at the middle school! Before long I'll be attending her first prom grand march! WHERE does the time go??
I feel like I wish my life away always waiting for the weekend. I need to remind myself to just enjoy each day and slow down a bit.

Have a nice 'slow' and peaceful day :)

Awww what lovely grand daughters you have! They look so excited too! I agree time does go by so fast. My boys just seem to be shooting up at the moment and my eldest who is six is just constantly surprising me these days and I realise that he's not my little baby anymore......

They are soooo adorable, Darla!! I was just talking to my sister about time going by so fast. Her oldest boy just turned five and it seems like he was just born... It's good to enjoy every moment!! Thanks for the reminder... Hugs, Silke

Your family is so beautiful, bless their little cotton socks! My grandad use to say this to me while I was growing up.
All the best Darla, thank you for wishing me a calm day!

A lovely pic of your grand-daughters on their first day of school, Darla. Aaron doesn't like school at all....even on the first week. I must admit, I was never a fan of school myself so I can sympathise with him. lol
