Back to School Blues

I have the Back to School blues. I do not remember getting them in the years past. Maybe it is because this is our last year of elementary school. Whew, it is hitting me hard. I have been looking back at my kids first day of school photos and I am freaking out. They have grown so much. It makes me wonder, what I am feeding them? They are smart and funny. Plus, I think they have matured more than I realize and I need to let them be more independent. It is hard to face that reality. Have you ever had the Back to School Blues?

Look at that kid! He is in 7th grade, yikes. He is almost as tall as me. I even scheduled him to get braces the day before school started. What a bad mom I am! He took it all in stride and has impressed me with his good attitude about the whole thing! Plus, I think he has finally realized he will soon have perfect teeth to go with his killer smile!

See this little girl, she is my baby! Fifth grade means the last year of elementary school in our district. Next year she will be in middle school. She is my mini-me. To be honest, she scares me. She is wise beyond her years and I see big things in her future!

I am blessed to have such great kids. I should note, it does take a village to get it all done. My dad is awesome, he takes Bela to school and picks up three of his grandkids from school everyday. (He is retired) My mom still works, but she comes home and cooks dinner, and she totally feeds me and my kids a couple days of week. We are pretty spoiled. I am grateful for my parents, they are the best!

And just a little reminder about My Paper Pumpkin! You can sign up anytime to start getting these fun boxes delivered right to your door, but tomorrow is the last day to get that great deal I spoke about here! Give it a try, I think you will love how easy it is to make your own hand made cards. You can make your Paper Pumpkin just like the printed sample in the kit or head to the My Pumpkin Challenge for more inspiration.  

I hope you have a great weekend. I am looking forward to a three day weekend full of birthday parties and even the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs. I cant wait!
