It feels like it’s been forever since I kept up with my own Meme!! I hope 5 are enough to get in all the good thoughts for the week.
1.I’m so thankful that my daughters returned to school and the week has had good reviews school wise.
2. I’m so thankful that my daughters celebrated their 16th birthday on Wednesday………yes how in the world could those babies be 16!! They started their day getting their driver’s license, yes in FL you get a permit at 15 and a DL at 16, with limited driving hours, but basically full privileges. I grew up with the same thing, so it’s not startling to me, but as their mom……..oh my goodness it was a tough one! Both passed their road test and as they dropped me at home and drove off to HS it was a moment of heart pounding. This is day 3 and all seems well.
3. I’m so thankful that my husband will be home tomorrow! Kevin flew to Vegas on Wednesday morning and while a short trip, I admit, I like my husband home.
4. I’ve had a wonderful week with Nick, this being his last week of summer break. He’s been busy with friends over and going to friends, he’s practiced football almost every night, and he’s just been a pleasure to be with. He starts 6th grade on Monday…………and well as my baby you don’t even want to imagine the tears I might have in my eyes after I drop him off.
5. While saying goodbye to summer break is tough, bye bye sleeping in, and slugging around in my jammies til noon(yep that is my current state) bye bye to a more relaxed pace and no ranting about homework/projects and bed times. I am also ok with saying hello again to some routines, like getting the kids off to school, and at least for now, some quiet time for me.
I’ve blogged quite infrequently this summer and I really miss the time I took to brainstorm and write and share. I miss reading my favorite blogs too. I look forward to this very much!!
Happy weekend all………………
