Scrappy Sunday

Hello everyone!
I have been at my son's overnight baseball tournament all weekend, and I am WORN.OUT. Being in the sun/heat all day really wears me out....but we are home now. :)

I've done a little extra scrapping this past week, other than my usual monthly assignments for The Scrap Room. I used some leftovers from a previous kit and a sketch by the talented Susan Stringfellow and came up with this layout:


If you're like me, the LAST thing you want to be thinking about right now is school, but I needed to get this photo scrapped and put away in the album.

Here is my journaling:
Oh, my heart...my babies are both starting school today. They are excited, but I feel like crying. Hurry up, 3:15 pm! -Mommy

Do you feel like that when the 1st day of school rolls around, or are you thrilled that the house is quiet again as the kids start back? It's always sad for me. I hate letting go. I just love having my boys here at home with me. Yes, they get annoying and the summertime "I'm bored" chant is irritating, but....I'd much rather have them at home with me than at school all day long.

July is halfway over, and it will be back-to-school time before we know it. *sniff
