One last time....

It was the day before school started again. The last day of Summer break.

And as much as I love my kids, boy was I ready for them to go back! So I took them out for ice cream as an end of summer treat.

It started well.




Then it got a bit worse...


and worse... (eating the bottom of the cone, with the paper still on, is not a good idea)


And ended in the ultimate sticky mess.


You have no idea how hard this was for me! I'm not the neatest person in the world but I have a huge problem with stickyness. Huge. I'm cringing just looking at these pictures. And he was covered head to toe.

So today was the big day back that I was so ready for. And I hated it.
The house was so quiet. The Baby was so bored. I wasn't mediating fights. It was so sad for me! I really enjoy them being around so much and it broke my heart to send them back today.


The Boy already had a girl trying to share with him. Little charmer.


I missed them so much all day! And then they came home and started fighting and I remembered it's kind of nice to have quiet days sometimes.

Darling ice cream picts! Why can't we make up our minds about school :)? Well, I see your other blog is avoiding housework, now it will be harder to do! Kids always make a great excuse to leave the house and go have some fun!

I feel just that same way! I'm always so glad when summer starts, then the bickering and fighting so I'm ready to get back to the routine, and then I miss summer :) Good thing it comes around again next year!

Those ice cream pics are so cute!

Yummmm! I haven't had any DQ ice cream since.. April :) (When I went to visit my mom back home in Alabama!)

I love their blizzards, the butterfinger ones are the best!

And I don't like sticky messes either - yikes!

awwwwwwww, I remember going to dairy queen when I was younger!! My parents would take me when I got a good report card, I had my very first date there, and then later on, I tackled my very first pregnancy craving there. This post made me happy :)

School will be chaotic for us this year -- all four of them are going this time, from Preschool to 7th grade. That's a lot of scheduling! Plus sports! I love when people ask me why I don't work ;)

This is an adorable post! I have a little charmer too, who seems to always have a small group of girls trying to hang out with him. It is cute now, but soon I hope it changes! :)
