Not A Bad Thing......Right????

August 25, 2009

This when I need a little reassurance.....right about now!
THE DARLINGS are back to school,
I can't say that I am all that happy about it. You can call me a bad Mom...that's okay with me,
I just didn't get enough summer. It was to dang short!
and I miss those Darlings when they are gone all day. I am feeling like I want to keep them home all day, where I can see them. If I could I would probably wish for school again, but for now.....
PreShie....she is a Freshman....she can look me directly in the eye, and
her Mother thinks she is beautiful!
She has become very health conscious this year...that is rough on a sack lunch!
Oh....The Rooster...he is in high school now. This is him sitting on the ditch bank putting his shoes on, waiting for the bus to come. He is adjusting well. Not to sure I am, but he is.
The Boy. A Junior, and I am seriously sheding tears as I type that word.
He just has two years until he goes on his mission.
Where did the time go??????
He is working on playing quarterback this year.
And there they go! And I sadly return to my home to prepare for my day.
This is right outside my kitchen window. One of the first sounds I hear each moring is the sound of the hummingbirds beginning to feed.
Today we have a "swarm" of hummingbirds and I LOVE IT!!!
I fill our feeders atleast once a day and they promptly empty it.
They are a complete joy to watch.
Kitty Meow Meow, actually caught one they other day and it nearly broke the heart of
The Rooster. The cat sat for days and days hoping to catch another, but lucky for us
he hasn't been able to.
The Farmer's Mother came by last night. We really like that lady! She is a favorite around here.
Even the dogs know and love her. She came during dinner, and we invited her to join us, she announced that she had just eaten. When we offered her a little chocolate pie.....she quickly found that she was not as full as she had previously thought!
Oh we love her!!!
She brought with her a few of her organic yummy pears, that were grown in her own yard.
I had big plans for those pears.......
but so did The Darlings....and they are nearly gone. What a treat for us!
Life is pretty darn good around her.....but.......

I can't believe Riley goes to the Academy now! Oh my goodness!!! I think I'll start panicking a little when I hit that point too....but for now, I'm happily enjoying school being back in session! I think that makes me a cold hearted mom like "pedaling!" :)

What a cute post. Seeing pics of your kids off to school (and stepping on that bus!) brought back many memories. Ahh, where did all MY time go? It seems like I was just one of them. By the way, your pictures are all fab. What kind of camera do you have? I'm shopping around for a good one (leaning towards a Nikon.)

James....I have a Cannon and I LOVE it. If you were to ask Shauna "the professional" she would tell you Nikon. For me the Cannon is so fun!
