So It Was Like This...

It's Friday baby, and I am confessing.  I need to.  I have been up to no good.  It's why I gained weight this past week!  But in my defense, it was a stressful week.   So I am unloading, and starting anew.

I confess....

Usually when the school year begins I am totally feeling like this...

But this year, I just wasn't feeling the joy.  I couldn't understand it.  I mean come on!!!  All three in school...ALLL day.  Talk about the most wonderful time of year.  And yet, after I dropped off Emily, I suddenly felt a strange emotion.  It wasn't elation.  Relief.  It was sadness.  What?  Where's the happy dance?  Where's the heel clicking?  Maybe it is because for the first time ever I didn't get a picture of all three of them on the first day of school. Kristin starts an hour and a half before the other two.  Maybe it is because they are no longer looking so little...well...Ryan maybe.

6th Grade....looking all that and more.  Look out middle school here she comes.
Minus one...the group shot.

Like her shirt says, OMG!!!
 At least he is still somewhat little!

it's sad to start seeing the posts of the kiddos going back to school, summer is coming to an end too fast!

I was always delighted when school started. No more paying for babysitters all day long while I was at work!

Your kidz are gorgeous!

Well, you're more attentive than I am. I get a picture of the kids on their first day of kindergarten and then they probably won't get another until they start graduating. :)

Wow, their schools don't start at the same time? That's bizarre!

I hate when kids grow up. They should stay so little and cute and adorable forever, you know? None of this going out into the world thing. I definitely would have felt sadness as well. And your girls are beautiful!
