as you are aware, my kids started back to school today. it's one of them days. it's always hard because the first day of school, so many emotions are going strong... there's the emotions of the kids and then there's the emotions of the mommy's. today i'm sad. why sad? i have all this time to myself, which in motherhood is not normal any mom can tell you that. but with all of this time, comes time to reflect on the fact that my babies aren't babies anymore. madison is in 1st grade! it's the big girl grades for her now... and mackenzie is in 3rd grade. it's really hard to accept for me because i know that soon i will have high schoolers! when maddie's a freshman, kenzie will be a senior, and well, let's not go there just yet.
so what's my plan for the day, well i want to do a hi five for my business, then i'll attack some of the housework. laundry. the spare room. kenzie's room. the spare bathroom, our room, maddie's room, etc. i may not get it all done today, but i'll do what i can. i am doing a fall clean and purging out things we don't use or don't need anymore. and rearranging furniture... it's time for a fresh new beginning in this house.
i'll also have to charge my camera. i didn't realize it was so low. i couldn't even get one photo of the girls before they left because as soon as i turned it on the camera shut off again...
so there may be another post today with how the girls did at school and what's going on there, but i will get to that later :)
and I want to leave you with a bible verse today:
Ephesians Chapter 6 verse 10
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.
