Back to School!
Both kids are back to school! YES! Is it just me or were you kind of excited to have them go back too? There’s just something nice about getting in to a routine. Don’t get me wrong. It was a wonderful summer but, I was ready! They were too! Here’s Ireland on her first day. We always snap a picture. Do you too? It’s so cute to look back at them. Wow, the time flies! She’s in 8th grade this year! She tells me her first week went great! She was a tired camper at the end of the day. Hungry too! But, overall she says she’s excited to be back. There’s even a big football game to end the week.
As far as my college freshman, Riley goes, I think he forgot who we are! LOL! Just kidding! He’s loving college life! We sure miss him not being in the house but, I know it was time to let him fly. And, boy has he! We had dinner with him this week and I couldn’t believe how much he’d grown up! It’s amazing what happens after just 2 week away. Don’t you agree? He’s so independent all of a sudden! So, I’ll just keep texting him and hope he’ll return a few of them. He’s busy and happy and that makes me happy too! So, no more Kleenex. Not today, anyway. I’ll see him in at parent’s weekend in a few weeks. Can’t wait ’til then!
