A Day of Firsts


It’s the first day of school!!!!

The Princess, hair glamorously brushed for her first day of middle school….

….14, getting on the bus for his first day of high school….

….and 16, driving off to school in his first very own car!

Yes, he’s finally driving again, people. Stay home and bar the doors!!

It’s a 1998 Jeep Cherokee. He petted it and hugged it and kissed it, and I cried and begged him to be careful and made him call me as soon as he got to school.

I’m a bit anxious. 😮

Me, I get my first day of uninterrupted writing time in what seems like forever!

    I actually miss those first days of school. :yes: It has been a long time since my two were in school. My grandsons started Thursday but are being allowed to miss today since their Dad got home from Iraq yesterday. :shimmy: They are spending time with him. Thanks for all the prayers said for his safety. They were really appreciated. :thumbsup: You are a great group of people.
    I am also excited that I won the Book. Thanks Suz and whoever drew the number this week. Have a great day and hugs to all. :hug:

    Congrats, Fannie!

    Suzanne, I can well imagine you cried and made “16” call you when he arrived safely!

    I need to send my cats to obedience school. If only! 😆


  3. Becki says:

    First day of school in Texas, too!

    Hours of quiet. No Hannah Montana, High School Musical (1 or 2), or antics of boys living in a hotel!

    A quiet cup of coffee.

    An old movie.

    Housework can wait.

    Anyone for champagne? :woof:

  4. Alice Audrey says:

    He has his own car?!!! 😮 Be afraid. Be very afraid.


  5. Tori Lennox says:

    Hopefully, that one wreck will be 16’s one and only. 🙂

  6. Susan says:

    16 must have been on cloud nine! :snoopy:

    Congrats Fannie!!! Sometimes I miss getting ready for back to school. When else do you get to buy all new clothes every year. :purr: Hope everyone has a great day today. :thumbsup:

    Leanne :butterfly:

    His car is nicer than mine!!

    Enjoy the day alone!!

  10. Estella says:

    Congrats Fannie!
    It has been thirty two years since my youngest started school.

  11. Dru says:

    Isn’t it grand when the kids go back to school. My niece and nephew start on Wednesday and my sister can’t wait.

  12. Brandy says:

    Sounds like a full day. I bet everyone rests well tonight!

  13. Lis says:

    Oh the nightmares this brings back lol

  14. Ellen says:

    My kids don’t start for another week, but it’s always bittersweet – I’m happy to get the peace and quiet (little though it is with our business, etc), and a bit sad at how fast the “first day of school” comes each year. Can’t they take a Stop Growing pill? 😥

    Congrats on the uninterrupted writing! :woof:
