It's Back to School and this year it's all 3 children going.
Nate is starting High School and is worried he'll get lost. Georgia is going into 7th Grade and is sad that she doesn't have any classes with her friends and she can't even eat lunch with them as she is in Symphonic Band which means she eats with the 8th Graders. And Carter is going into Kindergarten and it means Mummy is at home all alone :( Early morning cuddles in bed and lounging in the PJ's will have to wait until weekends and will be replaced with lunchboxes, lost homework, pumping up bikes tires and making sure Nate gets on the bus. All my babies are stepping out and making their way in the world and this Mama Bird knows they need to stretch their wings and fly even if she has tears in her eyes :(
But I'll get used to it and maybe I'll finally have the clean house I've been looking for all Summer and all those chores that need doing but aren't urgent (cleaning out too small clothes from closets, moving furniture to vacuum the dust bunnies, recycling a years worth of magazines etc) will get on to the "to do list".
Plus I can craft when I like (chores pushed aside again maybe ;)) and there will be other things to fill my day.
Anyway on to the reason you're here, it's time for another Magnolia Monday and I can believe I'm on week 15 of my mission! LOL I think you'll like this weeks as Tilda is feeling a little sassy :)
