Mixed Emotions

I have mixed emotions today. Tomorrow school starts back and my oldest grandson starts middle school.Where did the time go.It seems like yesterday that I was rocking him. I am not sure I am ready for this.But it will come and I will survive.

I am looking forward to this time of year.Soon the leaves will change and there will be pumpkin patches,fall festivals, cool brisk mornings to sit on the deck and have coffee.Many good things to look forward to.


  1. We still have a month of summer left officially, but when the children go back to school it does seem like it should be fall.

  2. We have had a summer of cool weather here in Michigan . Only about a weeks worth of hot weather spread out. Frank was disappointed, but i liked it. Fall is my favorite time of the year. I am afraid our fall color may be short this year. Some of the trees in my area are already getting hints of yellow and some are even falling. It may be related to tree stress because of the cool evenings. This seems to me,to be the shortest but the most busy of summers.

  3. My son lives in Mich. we are originally from Ohio
    being in Fl the only thing I miss is the Fall.
    I remember getting my kids ready for school, I still stroll through the back to school stuff and smile!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog, I appreciate the company!
    God Bless you and yours

  4. It just seems so odd that school is starting already. It should start in September and end in early June. I always thought it would make more sense - for Florida - to have 3 months off in winter instead. Then the kids could be inside out of the scorching summer heat.

    I sure hope we see a little more sunshine this weekend. I'm about over all this rain. 8-}

    Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^

  5. Simply stunning, I too love this time of year. It's my favorite season. We have been unseasonbly cool this year, so I have been having my coffee on the porch and deck in the eves and morns. Good to hear from you again!

  6. Fall is my favorite season, the colors are all so beautiful! But in Michigan we have to wait awhile yet.

  7. This picture was from a couple of years ago in Vancouver Washington.
    I am so ready for Fall this year. I can hardly wait!Being in N. Florida we have to drive north to see the beautiful leaves.
