Wordful Wednesday – Back to School 2013

Wordful Wednesday 411Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, except WITH words. It’s for those of us that just cannot be wordless, no matter how much we try. Add my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below. Easy peasy.

My kids headed back to school last week and I’ve had a hard week, let me tell you.  Bisco the dog and I have been moping around the house wondering what to do with our selves.  It’s like the heart of our home is missing and it’s sad, sad, sad.  During the summer I just want a few minutes of peace and quiet, but now that the kids are gone I miss their noise and chaos.  Plus, I think it’s really hitting me how quickly they grow up and that I don’t have a ton of time left with them before they head off into the world to become independent creatures.   Of course, that’s the ultimate goal, but I didn’t think it would creep up so quickly.  Now, when you see the pictures you’ll wonder what I’m talking about.  My oldest isn’t even in high school yet. But she will be.  Next year.  And then everyone else will be and then they’ll be done.  I’ll blink and they’ll be gone.  I just know it.  But, enough of that.  Here’s a big part of my heart on the first day of school 2013:

    God your kids are just the cutest things. But I don’t see grown-ups yet. You’ve got a few years more before they’re on that slippery slope of young adulthood. Hang in there mama!! Just think, more time to write and read blogs, right? lol

    OH. I hear ya!
    My house is eerily quiet, even with two teenagers home.

    I miss the chaos.

    Your kids look adorable!
    LOVE your oldest daughter’s dress. Very pretty.

    LOL. Zeke went off to preschool today w/o crying, and I’m doing the happy dance. It is starting to sink in that in 18mo. Luke will be gone– that makes me very sad, but the kids going to school? Nah. Love that the twins wear their hair differently. Starting to want their own identity? Are they in the same class?
