...playing in the backyard after school. Yep, school has begun again. Its been a tough adjustment because none of us are ready to let go of the easy summer time routine just yet. This school year is a big one. My oldest is in middle school now and my youngest is in pre-kindergarten and about to turn five years old. My babies are growing up fast despite any protests from me. Its sad but its also an adventure into a new phase of life. I am the mother of big kids now.
