The sunny skies and warm temperatures say summer is still here, but the school calendar tells a different story. Public schools are back in session, and for the first time ever I wasn't taking a first-day-of-school portrait of my kids.
Tomorrow is a big day for our daughter as we take her off to college to begin her new life as a freshman. Our son--a college senior!--is settled into his new apartment and ready for a big year, too.
There's nothing like seeing your kids grow up to make you realize how quickly time passes. The house is going to seem very quiet for a while as we adjust to this "new normal." I'll shed some tears for sure, but I know it's all good. We are indeed blessed.
