First Day of School

My sweet hubby was in charge of pictures yesterday morning, so we got this...

Thankfully we got this too....

I've gotta tell ya, I think I like the first one better. It's far more honest!  :)

Popsicles all day long!!!

I found this cute, cute memory game that's perfect for this heat. Check it out here. 

My girls officially started school today. They both had great days and for that I'm so thankful. The baby took a great nap, so I got to have some quality time with a dear mentor. For that, I am so thankful too.

See you soon!

Back to School

My girls start school tomorrow.... I can't believe that I might actually have a little time to myself two days a week (if Jack cooperates with his naps). What will I possible do with an hour or two of "free" time? Ahh....the possibilities are endless.  Sorry, I digress.....

The point of this post is to give you a fun "back to school" snack idea that I just stumbled across.  How cute are the above candy apples with that FREE printable?  It would make such a cute after school snack or or school party treat. You'll notice there is also a darling pear printable. Don't put it past me to tie these on the stem of an apple or pear in my girl's lunch box. Cute. Fun. Free. All the things I like!

Anyone still there?

I wouldn't expect you to be since I've been M.I.A for the past six months. There have been so many times that I have thought, "gosh, I need to pop into the ole blog and give an explanation for my absence" and then something distracts me and I don't. I'm so sorry to have left you hanging without even a "see you later" post.

But....putting the past behind me, I am back. I'm probably going to ease back into blogging and just see if it fits in with my now crazy wonderful life with three kiddos.  If you're wondering what I've been doing, that is it. Spending time with my hubby and my precious children. Our Summer has been full of family fun, lounging around, enjoying God's creation and melting in the Texas heat.  It's been wonderful and a part of me grieves the start of school on Tuesday. But, there are plenty of great things about starting school, so for them I am grateful.

I hope you all had a wonderful Summer!!
