It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It's the most wonderful time of the year. Moms face is a glowing her heart is exploding with gladness and cheer because this is the beginning of a new school year. The children are waiting their hearts anticipitaping as the school bus draws near. Oh, it's the most wonderful time of the year.

Yes, this is song I was singing the first day of school. Yea, I know, I used to pride myself in the fact that I was not one of THOSE moms that enjoyed seeing their kids off to school. Well, somewhere along the line that changed. I've never been this ready for a school year to begin. It helps that for the most part the kids were excited too. We've had a VERY busy summer and due to that I was ready for life to kind of get back into a routine.

Weston started Kindegarten this year. So far, he is LOVING school. He's doing a great job getting up and at'em in the mornings. It's amazing how much he's changed and matured just this summer. I hope this good trend continues!

Photo Contest at 5 Minutes for mom

Our daughter (see photo below) was inspired one day this summer to construct a tire swing. Her daddy (my husband) noticed her carrying a smaller tire with a short string attached to it. He asked her what she was going to do with the tire and string. She informed him that she was going to hang the tire from a pole. In her mind it was a great plan. To make a long story short, her daddy went and brought out a bigger tire with a long rope and hung it HIGH in the branches of an old massive tree in their play yard. That is an impressive and impossible feat in the eyes of little ones. This of course, thrilled her heart and embedded memories in her being that she will not soon forget about her daddy.
