First day of school

Well, school officially has started. Now all my kids are in school. My youngest started kindergarten and my oldest is a senior. And I am home all alone. I have waited for this for years and now that it is here I am sad. I start to cry thinking this is my last year with my oldest. It seems like yesterday he was just being born. Then it hits I'm getting old! Enough about getting old! Cuz I don't want to! Here are some pics on the first day. Note one is missing from the picture. He had football practice and I didn't get his pic!:(

And see the excitement on the oldest ones face! If we all could get that excited about things! :)

Sad sad news!!

We received sad news over the weekend. My son and daughter's close friend past away due to a car accident. He was so young. I wrote this poem for him:

If we had one wish

we'd use it on you

To see you one last time

and say the words you never knew

Now each and everyone of us

holds a memory or two

You have touched alot of hearts

in a way you never knew

So,when we have to say goodbye to you

know this is the hardest thing

we'll ever have to do

I am thinking about scrapbooking it and then framing it for his family. Please leave me a comment what you think? Or any ideas and suggestions.
