Summer's Winding Down....


My kids go back to school on Monday. Today is meet the teacher day! Elayna had a fantastic teacher last year, and I really hope she gets another one just as good. Andrew's teacher last year......well, let's just say I hope he gets a great one this year! ;o)


This year, Andrew and Elayna are going into the fourth grade.
My daughter Shelbie is going to be a freshman in high school, and my son Tim will be a senior in high school. I can hardly believe it! Two kids in high school, and one about to graduate. I know it's said all the time, but...where DOES the time go??


Daily life will be changing dramatically as of today. The summer is over, so the girls will be home all the time now except for every other weekend, when they go to their dads.
Andrew will be coming home Saturday from spending the entire summer with his grandmother. (being spoiled rotten!)
Tim will be with me a little less now, though. During the school year, he is with me from Thursday - Monday, every other week, and is with his dad the rest of the time.
So, more of all of the kids except Tim. And he's so busy with work & anyway!
Did I mention he's a SENIOR? Gah!

Thank you all so much for your comments on my last post. I have been wanting to write about my feelings about Tim's color blindness for a while now. It felt so good to write about it, and then to get your kind comments was even better. Just another reminder of why I love blogging so much!

I am so ready for fall! I've loved summer, but fall is my favorite season and I can't wait for it. Cooler temps, fires in the fireplace, Halloween, and of course....the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes. LOL



Alright, that's all my brain will allow me to remember today.
Have a great weekend & visit Mrs 4444s for more Fraggin'.

I can't believe school is about to start already. So crazy.
And I love fall too, but this year I am enjoying summer so much that I don't want fall to start just yet. :)

I just can't believe summer is over! It's rather depressing.

so sad about summer coming to an end ... and I think so cal may skip over fall with this late arrival of summer temps.

Everyday Kathy said...

Hello fellow fragmenter! (I play on my Everyday Mommy blog) I totally craved pumpkin lattes when I was pregnant, now I don't ever want to see one again!

Where does the time go? My girl is only three but I can feel the time warp beginning!

Myya said...

Time really does fly. Less then 5 years ago I had no kids, now I have 3 with one about to start preschool. WOW!
Mmmmmm, I'm ready for yummy seasonal lattes too!!!

I can't believe it's the end of summer either!

I am so amazed by how many kids are in school already. Ours do not start until after labor day. It is always sad for me because I can get a grand kid whenever I want during the summer and during school we are restricted to weekends. I feel twice as ripped off this summer since I literally spent 42 days in 2 different trauma units. The next few weekends we will be warriors trying to do as much as we possibly can. I also cannot forget that we came very very close to losing a son; and very close to a grandson losing a foot.
I'm just going to start thinking pumpkin..and I did go Christmas shopping last week!
Have a great weekend..

Visiting from Friday Frags- have a great weekend!

I don't know where the time goes, either! Kids grow up too darn fast! Hope the first day goes well for all of them.

It's so interesting to me how you can manage the ever changing schedule of kids. You are super woman :) I didn't realize you lived on a such a big property - can I build a pole barn there? I need more room LOL

It was so great seeing you this summer. Glad I could be a part of your crazy schedule!
