Back to school for most...but not for us.

Yesterday was back to school in our neck of the woods and boy was it nice for this SAHM. We sat outside with out coffee and watched all the parents and kids rush out of the neighborhood for the first day of school.  As I watched my little boy ride his bike it made me sooo happy that he still has about 3 years left at home with old mom. The first 3 years of his life have gone by in a blink so why would I think the next 3 years would be any different....they won't.  I wish I could tell my baby to slow down, but we all know that won't happen either.  Last night I spent over an hour going though almost every picture I've ever taken of him and thinking how blessed I am that I get to do all that again with Baby Drew.

Running errands yesterday was a breeze. We did a little shopping at Old Navy and the workers far out weighed the amount of customers.  I always look forward to this time of year...if only the weather would cooperate and we could see an end to the 100+ days.

With all the above being said, I hope all of my friends who are teachers, had children going back to school or starting their first day of kindergarten had a great first day back to school!

I know!!! I love when school starts back up!!! More room for us!! :) It does go by so fast which is why I don't know why people really rush their kids to grow up, society has so much pressure to make them grow up too fast!
