First Day of School

Today Josh and Izzy went back to school. I know they'll have a great day, but I'm not ready for them to go back yet. I'm not ready for summer to end.
I'm not really emotional about it. I didn't cry from missing them. I just really like it when they're home. I like being around them and we have a great time together.

I'm REALLY not looking forward to homework. (I could dedicate a whole post to my opinion on children's homework, but I'll save that for another time.)
One thing that is good about them going back to school, is that I get to spend quite a bit of one-on-one time with Ben. That's something I am looking forward to.

So for now, I'll put on my happy face as they get on the bus, and go back into the house to enjoy the time I have with my little brown boy.

It seems like just last week you were going back to elementary school. They are so darling (or handsome, so Josh isn't And what a great picture of Ben.
I am ready for a long Fall.
Thanks for putting the pics up.

That is still must be exciting, though. It is crazy that your kids are getting so old! When I think of Josh or Ben, I just think of these darling little boys running around, three years old and lovin life. How time flies.

It's been a while since I visited your blog, so I had to catch up on all of the posts! You have a wonderful family, and you are a wonderful mom! It shows so clearly!
