Hey Guys, sorry I didn't post last month. Family vacation took me to Virginia and to my brother's wedding all in the same month. Talking about hectic but I have to admit it was the best time I've had in a long long time. It has been almost two years since I've seen my baby brother and my husband ended up being his best man. We live almost 600 miles apart so planning was kind of tedious but in the end it all worked out. Now I can let out a big sigh of relief right? Wrong! My mind is now consume with back to school stuff, registration and football season. My teen age son 14 by the way is driving me crazy. Books, clothes, expensive Air Jordons and uniforms is the topic of each day in my household. Anyway I promise to have more for you next month.

P.S Is there any other parent/author out there who wants to share the back to school blues or should I say happiness!!!!

Jamie, it's been a few years for me since my youngest is 27, but I do remember those days and all I can say is, 'this too shall pass.'

My granddaughter hit the publish button before I was done. She's sitting on my lap and I'm trying to type around her little wriggly body.

I wanted to add to just enjoy this time. Someday he'll be all grown and these back to school sessions will be gone. Enjoy them. I used to laugh at my son because he wanted all these expensive things for school when I shopped at Costco and bought in bulk.

Now that Jeff is grown, I sort of miss those sessions that sometimes got louder as the days went on, but some days I'd give anything to have that little kid back. He's a great man, but when I look at him I think about the kid who is still inside.
