It seems as though the wind brings fresh air and new beginnings. It was always fun getting the kids ready for school. There was an air of excitement, they were nervous and excited at the same time. They wondered what teachers they were getting, and who was going to be in their classes.

And then they started College, we had to buy towels, bedding and every other thing a new College kid needed. The boys were easy, they were happy throwing everything in a plastic bag, but our daughter seemed to be much more organized. Plastic containers, suitcases and everything had to match. Girls have so much more STUFF! Did I ever tell you how much I missed her when she went off? Well with 3 boys and 1 girl, you can understand that, right? Her first year away, I was looking forward to her coming home this one weekend. Well it just so happens that we were going to have a snow storm. I was devastated! My husband must have know how upset I was, because he took off work that day and we drove up to Penn State to pick her up! Don't get me wrong, I love my boys dearly, but they don't call as
much as your daughter does, just to chat.

# 3 & Wife M., Husband B & daughter, #4, graduate, me & hubby, # 1.
Number 4 ( the last one) and his then girlfriend K. Now his wife.
Now they all have graduated and left home, 3 are married, we have 3 grand kids, and I don't know where all that time went!
So now here we are in the new Fall season and we don't have to move anyone up to school anymore. I love it and hate it at the same time. We don't go up to school anymore just to see the kids and go to the football games, it is just different. Although now we can enjoy helping our grand kids get ready for school, and the excitement is back again. We can watch our 5 year old grandson play football, I can't believe they start them that young now. We can watch our grand daughter in her cheer leading outfit, cheer for the teams. I am also delighted to say that I am watching the youngest, 3 months old, while our daughter goes back to work. I am so glad that I can finally help her out now that I am not working anymore.
I know this is a soccer game, I don't have a football picture yet.
So this is how my Fall season is starting this year. How has your season been going?
Getting kids off to school?
Enjoy the last weekend of Summer! Say hello to Fall~
