First Full Week of School

Well, we moved our daughter into her dorm on Wednesday.  Was a scorching hot day to be trudging up and down 6 flights of stairs but she's settled in her room.  I couldn't stand it on Thursday, not hearing from her, so I broke down and texted her to see how things were going.  Thankfully she called me back and sounded good so that made me feel better.  I'm not sure who is suffering from the separation more, me or my husband.  He actually stopped by her dorm on Thursday to see her.  Big guy does have a marshmallow heart!

My son is settling into his second year of high school with his usual grumpiness.  He is not a big fan of school but I think he does enjoy the social aspects of it.  He'd never admit it though.

Now that my "babies" are back to school it's time for me to finish some of the pieces I've been stitching.  Hope to have a couple of new things listed this week.

Happy crafting everyone!

Busy Week

It's Back-To-School time.  That means for all of us mothers and/or teachers that we are winding up our summers.  I've spent the whole week running the kids for haircuts, clothes shopping, doctor visits, and early check in for college.  This is definitely the least favorite part of summer for my teenage son.  He's not a big fan of school!

Yesterday my daughter and I did her early check in at college.  Let me tell you that it was steaming hot on campus and we were both getting cranky way before we were done.  Now that we did that though she can just get her key on Wednesday and move right in to her room.  Yeah!

I'm beginning to feel the stress of her impending departure.  I think my husband is too!  We've both been moody over the past week and I'm pretty sure it's because our baby is flying the coop!  Hope things settle down for everyone when we get her moved in and have a few days to adjust.

Enjoy the time you have left this summer with your kids.  It goes by fast.!

Wonderful Weekend

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  I did.  Celebrated my birthday on Saturday.  Which one, I think I will keep to myself.  On Sunday we had a family get together because my niece is home from Kansas with her 16 month old son.  It was the first time we had all been together since Christmas.

We had a great time watching my 2 great nephews (16 months and 13 months) playing with each other.  Did some swimming, visiting, and then ate the delicious North Carolina Pulled Pork my hubby smoked on Saturday.  Great time with the family. Can't wait until my other great nieces make their arrivals.  One any day now and another in November.
