...to their first day of school. Wearing their cool new shoes...
...and their cool new attitudes. Ms. 4th grader is too cool to kiss mommy before she gets on the bus, yet doesn't forget to turn and wave with a big smile right before she gets on :)
And Ms. Kindergartner is so excited, she almost forgets to say 'good-bye' before she runs as fast as she can to the door of the bus when it pulls up. She has been waiting for this moment forever and is finally glad it's here (hopefully she'll still be as enthusiastic getting off the bus too).
Baby has her book-bag packed (with a family picture) and is waiting patiently for the bus. She really thinks she is getting on with her sisters, which makes me want to laugh and cry at the same time (because it won't be long)...
So, right now, the two of us are a bit lost, and are sticking stickers all over the wood floor to keep ourselves entertained. I think we are going to run some errands to keep our minds off of our girls being away (as if I don't have a million things around here I could be doing).
I took the holiday weekend 'off' and hosted our families 10th annual 'Scrapfest!' We had lots of scrap-booking, memory sharing, and yummy treats...a fun time for all involved! I just can't believe it's September already and school is back in session...although I'm enjoying the cool mornings where I can sit on the porch for a bit. I love fall and this time of year, but honestly...where does the time go?
