So much to tell ya, So lil' time....

This is my sweet son, Casen. Today was his first day of Kindergarten - a very bittersweet day for me. I'm grateful that he was happy and excited to go but at the same time, I felt like I left my heart in that classroom. I teared up and he said "Mommy, you are just sad 'cause I'm not gonna be with you today" and I said, "Yes" and he simply said, "It's O.K., I'm gonna be alright". So, I had to dry it up and be strong for him. He has been blessed with two wonderful teachers and I know it is gonna be a great start to his education. But Oh My, it was a tear jerker.

This is the front door to the home where I helped with a wedding over the weekend. Now, doesn't that just look like a happy way to enter a home! I had discussed with my dear friend, Kathy, a color for her front door just for this special occasion - and we decided on yellow - I don't think she could have picked a happier color! I love it!

Sorry I've been gone for a few days - now I've got so much to tell ya, I'll never get it in one post. But jus' so ya know - in the next few days - I'll show you some pictures of the wedding I just helped with, a delicious food table from another event I assisted with and I'm also gonna toot the horn of another one of my sweet friends. Now, let me jus' tell ya - you are gonna crack up when you hear the name of her lil' venture - but she is Oh So talented. If you have a lil' girl, granddaughter, or jus' know a special young lady - you are gonna love her hair bows!!!!!

I'll be talkin' with ya real soon!

I can't imagine how hard it was to leave your son at school, but how comforting were his words-so sweet!
Hope he has a wonderful first year and it's the start of many more!

Well if that picture of the door was a tease at to what is to come, I can't wait.

Casen looks so handsome for her first day in kindergarten. What a big day for all of you! Just think how sweet it will be when you re unite after class is over. I so loved greeting the school bus at the end of the day!

Looking forward to more pics of the wedding!

Hey Cathy!
Wow! you have been busy. Your little guy looks like a real sweetheart, and yes that first day of school is bittersweet, isn't it?

I really love the floral basket. Did you do that?? It's beautiful!

Kids are so sincere and smart. He sounds like a sweetie. The front door is beautiful, can't wait to see more photos. You just keep on being a "strong Mommy". He will do great in kindergarten. Have a wonderful day.

Oh my, I can't believe it's time for school already. He sounds like an independent little fellow. Good for him being so strong and brave. He does look handsome.

I can't wait to see your pics of the festivities you were involved in over the weekend!!

He looks so cute! I can remember my kids first day of school like it was yesterday. I was lucky that they both loved school!
That front door is so pretty.
I am looking forward to seeing your pictures from all the events.

Ada Mae - my dear friend - yes I was definitely cryin' in that picture you saw - I couldn't hold back the tears - it was just hard letting him go. But so far he loves it - so that is Great!

Cathy - I did make the door piece - thank you for the compliment - glad you liked it!
