It is that time again when school is back in session! It is so hot........ thank goodness for air conditioning. This year is a little different for me as the baby of the four started high school! I can hardly believe she is a freshman. Some of my favorite memories as a teacher are when my older three children were in high school with me. It was great fun! However, it has been 6 years since the last one graduated and things are very different. We like traditions in our home. Every year on the first day of school my man makes a big breakfast of his famous french toast. It is the only time during the school year that I eat breakfast at home instead of in the car driving - if I eat at all! Also, baby girl and I get our picture made on our big first day of school. As this was the first year of high school for her I started marveling about how swiftly the time has passed since her first day of kindergarten. I went and found those pics and had a pretty good cry. Isn't she darling? She was so excited. Isn't my hair huge? Always has been!
This was us this morning!!!! She is so grown!!!! And my hair is still big!!
I am looking forward to a lot of good times in the next four years. Pretty soon she will be taller than me - maybe not taller than my hair though!
