goodbye summer hello school

 I wanted to do something with the
kids on the last day of their summer vacation. I found out it was a free day at the Science Center. So we went there after lunch. Holy Moly lots of people!! We waited in line for about forty minutes just to get in. It was so crowded, this is the only picture I could get. Crazy. So we didn't stay there too long.

I don't know why, but I decided we'd go to the indoor swapmart on the way home.  It was a little scary.  We saw lots of interesting things. And people. Emily had her wisdom teeth out the day before and was feeling tired, so Eli and Isabelle took turns pushing her in the wheelchair.  It was an experience and we had alot of laughs during the day.  I think they'll remember it.

And here they are on the first day of school.  Isabelle is a big 5th grader.  I can't believe my baby is in 5th grade.

But I REALLY can't believe Emily is a Senior.  How did that happen?

I used to be so ready for the kids to go back to school and it was the happiest day of the year for me.  Now I just want it to slow down a little.  Why are they all growing up?  What's the hurry?

glad to see you're posting again. Yes, the kids are growing up. They looked so cute on their first day. Ours isn't until the 29th. I have enjoyed this summer, I'm not quite ready for it to be over yet.

Yes, I hated to have my kids grow up so fast too. And now, I'm going through that again with the grandkids. Time passes so fast. We should slow down and enjoy every minute of it. Cute pictures.

I can't believe Emily is a Senior! Doesn't it seem like your kids life is going by so much faster than your own?
