Last Day of Summer

School starts tomorrow. The boys decided that was cool about 4 hours ago. After all, they will be able to see their friends.
They spent the last couple days of summer pilfering sheet goods from our house-building supplies to enhance their tree fort. It's looking pretty good.
Actually, it looks like a tree fort made by boys. But I'm fond of that kid-did-it look. It speaks to me of all the time they spent on it...working together, keeping busy, letting Mom have a few minutes of peace. Well, as much peace as three boys with hammers can offer.
Tomorrow I'll be enjoying the "peace" of having the boys back in school. Usually that doesn't pan out-I end up busier than ever. At least being busy helps distract me from the fact that my oldest boys are going into 7th grade this fall. And my baby is starting 5th. When did they get so big?

So is it quiet today. Are you sitting on your porch sipping a cup of warm tea?

I hope you had a good first day of school Sabrina! They really do grow up way too fast, my youngest is in college this year. I love the tree fort, reminds me of the ones we used to build.

Hi Sharon,

No tea on the porch, unfortunately. I had to deliver a lamb to the locker at 8 am and go buy school supplies. I did take a nap though. That was bliss.


It isn't even funny how fast our kids grow up. And I'm so happy for them, and so proud... But when did all that time fly past? It's like you don't dare blink.

I can relate. My oldest went to college this Fall, my middle girl is a JR. and my baby is in 7th!! I keep looking around going "WHAT HAPPENED?"
