First Day of School
I feel like I am the only mom that is sad to see them go back! Am I really the only one? Maybe because they are all I have and I revolve my life around them I feel lost when I send them back. Today also marks Summer's last day of elementary school. They say time goes so fast and I agree. I really can't believe that she is in 5th grade. She was so excited to go back to school today. My normally anxious child had no problem sleeping and went to school without looking one bit anxious. She also has the important job of being a safety so I think that helped too.

Since Ray was a teacher the first day of school also always marked new beginnings for back to work and routine while he was here. It also makes me sad the first day of school and last day of school not only because he isn't here to see the girl's off but also because this was always an exciting time for him as well.

Blog Post
I have had this page for quite some time and have never posted. I thought today would be as good as any to start. For years I was told I should blog. At first I had no idea what a blog was or why someone would do it. Now as a someone that follows multiple blogs a day I realized it is about connecting with a person or taking inspiration for them. I think I was also nervous what if no one reads this? I guess that doesn't matter if it is a way to document our everyday. Some of my favorite people to follow are the ones that have amazing photos of everything they do. I can't help but be a little envious that they have all their memories preserved in such beautiful photos. What would I blog about? I have been told I always find "cool" things to do with my girls. I am an inspiration to others being a single, mom. I have the "best style" and "best dressed kids". I hope to incorporate a little of all of this in the blog. Hopefully someone will connect with my space like I have others and if not it will be a great journal of the time I use this space.
