Gulp.... Here's to a new school year.

Tomorrow my sweet children will be grasped into the hands of the public school system and our fun summer will be over. We have had such a blast this summer and have lived each second that we could to it's fullest.
Tonight.... I am nervous.
What if I didn't pack the right food... what if I packed too much or too little.
What if some how I show up late to pick Regan up and she is sitting there crying.
What if .... What if .... What if....

Well, tomorrow will bring a whole new phase to my role as a mother. I am not sure if I am ready for this new phase BUT ready or not... here it comes! GULP!!!

Monday night for FHE we decided to usher in this new school year in style. We invited all the grandparents and we had......


in our back yard.

After all of the yummy food and AMAZING blue steal posing it was time for Daddy to give the kids their back to school father's blessings. It was sweet........ personal... and reassuring. My kids are so blessed to have the wonderful Daddy that they have.
So, here we are..... Ready or not tomorrow will come and I will have a kindergartner and a fourth grader. Wish me luck... I just want to make sure I make it to my car before I break down. I will update tomorrow to let you know how it went!

on gavin's first day of first grade (meaning i had to pack a lunch...) i packed him so much food that he didn't get to play at all and they had to kick him out of the lunchroom before he finished it all. Ooops! and then, this year, i was totally unprepared and sent him beef jerky and applesauce. he said, hey mom - i was done so fast, i was the first one done! no kidding...

Julie, you are the best mom in the entire world. I don't know another mother who puts as much time and dedication into creating such wonderful memories for their kids. You make me want to be a better person and mom. I love you! This looked like a really fun time, Regan is so cute! Collin's backpack is too funny! Love it!
