Anyhow, I LOVE autumn, and this year I am very glad to see it come.
And as I sent the girls off to school this morning, I was taken back by how much it felt like autumn. I don't know if that means we are just having a cooler day, or that autumn really is going to come quickly. But that crisp fresh morning air was the most rejuvenating thing I have experienced for a while. It filled my soul as much as it filled my lungs, and it left me feeling powered up and ready to go.
And these little cuties helped, too:
Here's Thing 1:
And Thing 2:
And then (sniff, sniff) The Boy:
(yes, he started the big K today - I can't believe it)
Trying to get this guy to give me a good pose proved to be too much to ask.
But then I caught a glimpse of who he is to me ... that's my boy!
And don't tell the girls, but we went out for a little lunch date before I took him to school.
We mostly just laughed at the King and all his craziness.
Then it came time to take him to school. He found his seat and sat down and then, he basically just FROZE!!! I kind of giggled. Here is the crazy, rough-and-tumble, in your face kind of a kid I've always known, now basically paralyzed by the newness of it all.
And despite it all, I think he'll do great! (Doesn't he look awesome?)
And The King and I saved our tears until the walk through the parking lot and the drive home.
