As much as I didn't want it to come around it did. The end of summer knocked on our back door with a loud bang that I was trying hard to avoid, and all too quickly the kids were dragging me to the store to prepare for the first day of school. It came when I didn't want it to, and even though I didn't want it to come, I was reminded by a very good friend that I don't need summer as an excuse to do fun things with my hooligans. I have held on to those words, and we will definitely be making more memories. We'll just be doing it with backpacks and homework in tow. So here they are on their very first day. My little "angels" headed off for new adventures. I wish they would just stop growing up already!
