Time Flies {& A Winner!}

It’s been a crazy few days around our house. I’m working my way through piles of laundry, catching up at work, and still shaking sand out of everything. But it’s all totally worth it as this was our view for the past week:

 
We returned home from our family vacation (Trip Report to follow!) Saturday night, just in time to prepare myself the kids for the start of a new school year. How have this many years flown by?!

He is certainly not a little boy anymore! And to add to my anxiety, Babygirl trotted off to Kindergarten this year, too!

In all the excitement, I forgot to announce the winner of the UPrinting.com Canvas Giveaway yesterday!

Congratulations, Corbin’s Mom!!
Shoot me an email and I’ll give you all the details to collect your free Canvas Print.

I’m not going to lie, I’m a bit emotional right now…but I promise to get a hold of myself, and this blog, and get back to some projects soon!

  5. I am going to be a mess this year and Emory is just going to preschool two days a week! I can't even begin to imagine kindergarten!! It's a good thing that sweet little girl has her big brother to look out for her. How cute are they together?

  18. That view is bananas! I totally relate to all those emotions mama! Your "babies" are adorable. It's wild to see how big your son has gotten over the years- he's about taller than you!
