Both of the kids were in school today. Jacob started fourth grade yesterday and today Olivia started kindergarten. I was quite sad when I dropped her off this morning, just thinking how quickly the last four years have flown by with Jake and now she has started her school career. I start to think about all those little things moms think about when their kids start school. Worrying about all the things she will be exposed to and how small her little world has been up until now. Hoping that I have read enough, played enough and loved enough. I send them off each day with a kiss and a prayer and hope that I have done all that I could to raise good, kind little human beings, who will hopefully contribute to this world in a positive way. I want them both to grow up to love God and to love and cherish their family. These were just a few of the thoughts I had today as I sent my kids off to school.
Jake's shirt is suppose to look wrinkled however Liv's isn't. Oh well it all can't be perfect, can it?(~.~)
She was so excited!
I just can't believe how much he has grown in 4 years!(and how much our living room has changed..yikes! Please excuse the filthy mirror in the kindergarten picture, it's not like that anymore, I promise.;-). Oh, how I love this boy! So sweet and kind, he's turning into a real gentleman.
Alright, so enough about the back to school blues and on to a few fun items. First, while I was out junking(a plus of the kids being back in school) I found this super cute sewing basket. It's the prettiest pink and green and the fabric on the inside is in perfect condition. It's actually quite large and has little legs. It was such a steal at $3.99! It even still has the original Singer tag still attached.
The last thing for today is what's waiting for me on my coffee table, the new Romantic Homes and Victoria magazines. They look like they are full of fall beauty. I can't wait to dig in!
I am hoping to do a couple of summer in review blog posts next week. I didn't blog at all this summer so I though I would share some of the little trips we took and a few of the things I did while on break. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
