Happy Sunday everyone! Tomorrow is little man’s first day of Kindergarten. How did the Summer go by so fast?! I decided to take this week off from the blog, other than the few posts I had scheduled already, to spend the week with little man. We didn’t do much, spent a weekend in Nashville and then lazed around the house. I still can’t believe he’s five and old enough for Kindergarten! The tooth fairy made two visits to the house this past week as well so he was excited.

Last night we met his teacher and toured his classroom. He is so ready. I, on the other hand, am not ready to let my buddy leave me for school all day. I know he will do great, but I will miss having my little man with me. He’s like another limb, always with me, my little helper, and and play mate. But it’s time to let him go and I know he will do great!

I am starting The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski today as part of the Can You Read a Series in a Month? challenge. I’m excited about it and hope it will get me out of the summer reading rut.

  1. I remember even all these years ago the sense of loss I felt as each of mine started school. But my mother always said that bringing up children is like a long-drawn out letting go… The only time they are truly yours is when they are in the womb and after that – bit by bit, you give them the tools to go further away. I found that idea helped a lot. I LOVE the cover of Immortal Writers – hope you really enjoy it. Have a great week – our children don’t go back for another 3 weeks…

  2. It’s tough when they start school! And I’m with you- where did the summer go? Gah I can’t believe it’s mid August already. School doesn’t start here until after Labor Day, but still…

    Immortal Writers and the Chosen Knights both have great covers! Hope they’re good.
