Happy 1st Day of School!


Happy 1st Day of School!

The twins are starting Middle School today. They are now in 7th Grade and my baby is in 4th Grade. Can you believe it?!


The first day of school always bring me all kinds of mixed feelings. I am proud and happy and excited for the kids but after sending them off to school, I dread that I have to return to a quiet house. Sure, I always tell Hubby that I have a ton of things to do and that I'll be fine because I'll be busy. Then I get home and what do I do? I sit down and immediately notice how quiet it is around here. I didn't realize it but the kids make so much noise when they are in the house! I try not to think about how much I am thinking of them especially when it has only been 10 minutes since I dropped them off at school...


The twins wore their Harry Potter Time-Turners to school today. A part of me wishes that it actually works so I could go back to the beginning of Summer again. We had so much fun this Summer, it was incredible!

It is so quiet in the house it is starting to hurt. I switch off my phone and turn up the radio in an attempt to overcome the silence and then this comes on the air:

Somehow the song gives me a level of comfort and even though I'm still thinking of the kids, I don't feel so alone anymore. Everybody is growing up and I'm done moping. I'm shutting down my laptop and I'm off to the craft room. My Cameo has had a month of rest.

It's time to wake it.

  1. I hope your kids had a good first day of school. Ours starts tomorrow! It looks like you had a wonderful summer! I know we did, and much of our summer looks so similar to yours! We also did an Orlando/Disney Cruise trip and I'm thinking we might've been on the same cruise! We were in Orlando for a week, then cruised Aug1-8 also to the Eastern Caribbean on the Fantasy!! When did you go?

    1. OMG! We were on the same cruise, Allison!! That is so funny! We did the Orlando/WDW thing followed by the cruise, then we flew back to Seattle for a road trip down the Oregon Coast to San Francisco!

    2. OMG!!!!! I guess we never crossed paths... or maybe we did!!! I would've love to have met you and the family. Did you decorate your stateroom door? I would love to see what you made! I only found out about it a couple of days before our trip, so I made some stuff really quick. We are from Sacramento, so you also drove right past us! You had quite a long trip! Ours was almost 2 weeks, but not long enough! We had so much fun and are hoping to do it again soon! Before the kids get to old and don't want to travel with us anymore! ;)
      I really do love your blog. You are such an inspiration and have very useful posts! Thank you!!!

  2. Welcome back, Jin! Your loyal readers have missed you, but we are so happy you were able to enjoy your time with the kids. Can't wait to see what you will be showing us with the LD files which came out over the summer. We depend on you so much for creative inspiration, so summer was hard for us in your absence!
