Much more to come...

I'm a mix bag of emotions as I attempt to go to bed tonight. More on all this on Monday though.

All my little ducks head to school tomorrow and my oldest is off to middle school. WHAT??!!!

Regardless of the ages of our children, it's a new year. Change is happening all around them.

They are growing so fast. Priorities are before us. Newness is everywhere. I can't get my mind to settle down.

I'll write a whole bunch more about this Monday because I've got to spit it out of this mumbled jumbled brain of mine. Anyone into Tylenol PM?? It's my friend tonight, or I'll NEVER go to sleep!!

Say a prayer for all these kiddos starting school. Its a mix bag of emotions for everyone I think.

Colossians 3:15 "Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful."

Hugs and blessings~

I'm praying for you tonight! I hope you are able to sleep well! They are some pretty amazing guys! I would love to tell you I can't relate to what you are feeling, but I'd have to lie. Keep cherishing every moment!
Love to you,
Angie xoxo

I am praying for ya too - why is it such a Blessing AND such a curse to see 'em grow?

One more question for when I get to Heaven.

Hello sweet Fran!

I hope you've awakened refreshed and ready to embrace some change. Aren't you glad that His mercies are NEW every morning?

You might want to take a look at the latest post over at Elaine might just speak to your heart.

I prayed for them last night!! I thought of you and Kim and all moms sending their children off to school. My two are contemplating their future, one wants to head off to college to study music theory and the oldest is trying to find his way. Enjoy these years moms because it flies by so quickly, I will have a 20 year old in October!! Yikes!!

Have a great Monday.

Oh my, you are in my prayers! You all start early! My boys have two weeks, but we have registration this week. My youngest starts middle school this year.

LOVED the pictures from Destin! Totally my favorite place to go as far as beach trips are concerned! SO BEAUTIFUL! And so is your sweet family! GREAT pics of you all! It really is scary how fast kids grow up! Whew! I can't believe Landon will be 3 next month!

I hope you and fam have a super fun week back to school!

Oh, Fran, I am so with you on this one. Ours start tomorrow and I am not looking forward to it.

Ethan gets to go to the Academy at our church this year and for that we are truly, truly thankful. I was not liking the whole middle school thing!
