Just like that another summer has come to a close and a new school year has commenced! This is the last year until John’s senior year that I’ll have them both at the same school (can you tell this mama is in a bad state right now?). I know it’s cliche, but time truly flies. I picked up a few new things to use our first week back in the Target dollar spot (apple garland and paper garland) and at Home Goods (apple straws and plates).
And, before I knew it, our first day was here!
Because I’m reminiscing about school years past, take a gander at where we were just five years ago.
We took the requisite pics out on the front porch.
And I continued the torture with a few more…
Before we knew it, the kids from the bus stop were arriving. (It’s at our driveway.) We’re up to 11 boys and 2 girls this year! Elsa entertained the littlest ones while the bigger boys took up their standing morning basketball game routine after the summer break.
I pray that they continue to love school, that they model kindness, grace and manners, that their teachers are loving and engaging, and that this is the best year yet!
If you need me, I’ll be drowning my tears in my coffee. I truly love every second of having them home for the summer. There are only so many summers that we get. These are the days.
