There they go...and Blog Candy Winner!

Yesterday was an emotional day...My daughter, Cara, started 7th grade and my son, Ben, had his first day of kindergarten.



Both were nervous and excited--starting school in a new neighborhood....but they survived. (Mom--just barely!)






I am busy with my kiddos so I have nothing to post today....just wanted to let you know the blog candy winner from last week---Random.Cara picked number 61--
Stephanie Hargis who wrote "Ooo! What a great incentive to visit other blogs! I may just have to check out a lot of the blogs on your blog roll! :D Thanks so much for the chance to win!"



Congrats Stephanie---email me your contact information and I will get those goodies right out to you.


Thanks for stopping by!

Oh how cute they are!! Glad to hear they made out okay at their new schools!! That's always stressful but I think the kids deal with it a lot better than we do ;)

Your kiddos are gorgeous! Why is the 1st day of school so hard?! But then, after a week or two, it's like "thank heavens!!" (((Cam)))

I am so happy they survived there first day, in your new home. I too was so emotional, as Emily started High School. Both kids are adorable and I wish them a great school year!

Oh Carolyn-I feel your pain! My one and only kiddo started 6th grade this year. Leave it to Carole to point out that we have more first days behind us than we have in front of us...hugs to you and your darling kiddos!

Their so cute! It's always such an emotional day for moms too! I remember it being a sad day to see them go back but also there was the freedom for me to have free time for myself too! ;o)

It's so hard sending them off, isn't it? I just had a similar post last week -- one of mine started high school and one started first grade! Hope it's a great school year for everyone -- you too, Mom! :)

Hugs!

They DO grow up so fast. I knew you were nervous about their first day at a new school...and I'm happy that you made it! I KNEW the kids would be fine. It was YOU I was concerned about. :-) They are simply adorable!

I just had to give a small laugh when I saw your daughter...she is beautiful so not that. But I was laughing becuz my daughter starts 7th grade next week too and has picked out her outfit already--jean shorts and an Aeropostale t-shirt too! What happened to the days when I sent her to school in cute lil' outfits, nowadays its just jeans & tees...sigh! Oh, well--my daughter tells me "that's what everyone wears" so gotta fit in, yes! My son still doesn't care too much about what he wears, but he'll be starting middle school next year too, so we'll see. Hope they had a great 1st day of school!

TFS--
