Back to school

Unbelievably it is already that time again! Back to school....
Tonight we went out to get the last few things for the BIG, clothes, backpacks..When Joshua tried on his new tennis shoes he ran all over the house, declaring his new shoes were helping to run faster than before! It took me back to my school days, I remember challenging neighborhood kids to races in my "new" shoes! Just something about those new shoes, they just seemed to transport me to a new place, a place where I reigned supreme in running, which of course was not true!
I love the newness of back to school..the excitement in my kids and the sadness I feel each year as I send them off with new clothes and freshly sharpened pencils..another step closer to independence! This time of year helps me cherish them and causes me to hold them closer...It encourages me to make our memories count!


  1. I'm feeling the same things to learn, exciting change, yet I can't help feeling a little bit wistful about how quickly time passes. We're moving forward! :)

    Congrats on the blog, by the way!

  2. Thanks Brooke! I know how you feel!
    I wouldve commented sooner, but I just now saw your ya!
