First Day of School 2013/2014 School Year

Getting the kids ready to go back to school this year was really difficult for me....where did the summer go? 
As Brian gave the kids their Father's Blessings Sunday evening, I was so sad. It seems as though the older the kids get, the faster time slips away. It doesn't feel right that I have a child who is in the 10th grade now.  I can still remember "no longer being a Freshman"; walking down the halls of Canton South.  I guess in my mind I'm still cool + youthful (okay, maybe cool is a stretch, but a girl can dream, can't she?, lol)
Every day when I wake up, I'm so grateful for the time I have to spend with my children...summer is great for spending quality time together, and when the girls aren't fighting, it's totally I awesome :)  

As the kids came home from school, I wanted them to tell me how their day went....

Zach's 1st Day
-My English teacher videotaped everyone individually so she could remember each student by name.  We had to say our name + one thing about us...I said, "My name is Zach Beazer and I like to wakeboard." Oh, and there's this hot girl in this class also :)
-I signed up for Driver's Ed and it starts the beginning of September. 

Lauren's 1st Day:
-The best part of my day was that I was able to get assigned to be a TA for my favorite teacher, Coach Lowe.

Tess's 1st Day:
-I don't like my Sign Language class....we're not allowed to speak at all + I have no idea what the teacher is saying to us because she signs the whole time.  I don't know how to sign, that's why I'm taking this class.  I want to drop this class and sign up for something else.
-I sat with Ashley + McCrae at lunch.
-Our brand new school is pretty cool.
-So far, all of my teachers seem nice.
-I received compliments on my shoes + scarf today.

Ella's 1st Day:
-Miss Thorstrom went over some of the stuff we're going to be doing this year.
-I wrote a paper about my 1st Day.
-I met the new music teacher, but I can't remember her name....her last name is the name of a river in the US (or something like that) :)

Well, goodbye for now summer...we're sad to see you go :(

Hey Kim...the kids are growing up soooo's sad that I don't know them other than from pics and stories your mom tells me. I know exactly what you mean about "how fast they grow up" "baby" is 25 and getting ready to become a married woman (I'm not dealing well with her not being home anymore). I'm so excited for her "special day" and Sam and I couldn't have ever asked for a better man for our daughter! Kevin is an amazing guy. We love him very much...wish you guys could meet him. The wedding is coming up quicker than I'd like...especially since I'm MAKING everything for the decorations! But, I'm getting things done. I really miss all of you...and with Jennifer's wonderful day approaching, I can't help but to be sad that all of you won't be here to share this moment with us! :( Tell everyone we say "HI" and We love and miss you! Take care!
