I don't like it.

I don't like that yesterday was the last day of our summer break.
We have a tradition of going out for ice cream cones the day before school starts, just as one last hurrah.

I don't like that The Baby is starting Kindergarten.
He's still my baby!! Wahhhh!
I don't like that, even though we needed rain desperately, today is the day it came.
I could've used some sunshine this morning.
I don't like that a backpack is as big as a Kindergartner.

I don't like that I have a kindergartner, a 5th grader, and a 7th grader.
I don't like it. Not one little bit.
But as we say in our family, You get what you get and you don't throw a fit.

I do like that when I got in the car to leave the school and started crying this morning, God had the perfect song on the radio.

I do like that we're becoming surrounded by big wild sunflowers that pop out each year in late summer and early fall.

I do like that my house is quiet and I can work all morning.
Or sleep all morning.
I like that option...

Hey! I didnt realize that your guy was in Ellakate's class! They are even at the same table. How fun! Hope his first day goes great!

I remember when my baby went to Kindergarten... it's a difficult day for a mama. I love that you can look at the bright side of things too!

Hope all your kiddos have a wonderful first day!

My BIG QUIET DAY comes next Wednesday. I can't even imagine what I will do... just sayin'.

I've been thinking about you and Miss Gina all this week. It's so hard to let the baby go to school. We're doing the ice cream cones tonight as our last hurrah :)

The more I read your stuff, the more I like you. I am also really bad with details. I didn't realize our kiddos were all the same age (except my baby is going into 1st & I have 3 boys, help me!) We still have 2 weeks until school but I am sad about summer ending. However, today, I am allowing myself (taking the blame here) to be driven nuts and am slightly jealous that school already started for you :-) Mixed emotion!

Is it weird that I've been following your blog for so long that I feel a bit choked up about that little guy starting K? I always laugh when I see people post "You Get What You Get..." because here in the Boston area we say, "and you don't get upset" because when we say 'get' it rhymes with 'pet.' It took me forever to realize why some people say ...and don't throw a fit. LOL

I don't like that you had to cry by yourself in the car.

I do like that Clutter Free Classroom follows you. #359th reason you rock!

Thought about you today, Beki. So many crazy emotions all at once.

And Jody, your comment is perfect.

Yeah. I don't like that MY baby moved away this summer to start college. :( I don't like that. But I AM glad she's going on to college and that she is beginning her exciting adventure of life. Love that girl!
