The school bus goes by each afternoon.
And, the sales fliers in the paper all shout "back-to-school". I must admit that I miss all the excitement of having a school girl and/or school boy in our house. Those were sweet times. Lil' Mama had her first day today as a full time college student. I love it, but it's just not the same. She did all the prep - bought her own supplies, as well as her clothes. Rightly so. But I still miss it - having little chicks with school lunch boxes and new pencils - If you have this in your life right now, enjoy it.
Enough time spent on nostalgia, there's always somethun' happening around here to keep me occupied.
Here's the condensed version of our weekend. . .Friends we haven't seen in 15+ years, or even talked to in probably 7 yrs. contacted us to say they were in Houston and would love to stop by that afternoon to spend the night and go to church with us the next morning. They had their own plane so making a stop in LA would be sort of "on their way home" to Okla. They came, we visited, and then they were gone. It was so good to see them, but it all seems a bit surreal right now - sort of like I heard about it, but am not sure it really happened. Know what I mean?
The weather is still hot and humid here, but change is in the air - our evenings are beginning to be a little cooler. I can actually "smell" Fall in the air, even in the daytime. Whoa, sweet August!
Please slow down and stay a bit longer!
Did I mention this is my very FAVORITE time of the year?
