First day of school!

New clothes, backpacks and shoes. Time to pack lunches, (which i made last night, thank you very much) and get up early, UGH. I'll have quiet time during the day. I can go back to bed after dropping them off at school. Exercise without interruption. Have coffee with friends. This all leads up to one very important fact: FALL IS COMING!!! Happiness is just around the corner for me. I so look forward to cooler days, longer nights, and long sleeves. There's nothing better than cuddling under a blanket, looking at the stars, or lighting candles and having a nice dinner. It's harder to do these things in summer, because it's too light out for too long. I am in my best moods from September til January.

I think to celebrate today, we will go back to bed after we meet the kids' teachers, and hug a few friends we haven't seen in 2 months. This pic makes me laugh. This is their true feelings about school shining through.

The picture is priceless..I can feel Conor's pain..I don't like the thought of the summer fun ending either...but do look forward to cooler weather, the candles, something yummy baking in the oven and more time to cuddle up and read my book..(maybe)

Wow, your kids start school super early & with such hot weather! I agree with you...long sleeves & cooler weather is great. Our pastor from Grants Pass and his son who arrived at Simpson today, August 18, visited The Stirring the weekend of August 8/9. I mentioned you guys to them & they knew exactly who Randy was & said he was sitting just a few rows from them. Mark and Tyler visited 5 churches in an attempt to select a church for him while he's going to Simpson. Mark said at age 47 he was probably the oldest person there. Hope you got the $150contribution I made through The Stirring in your name in early May.
