Green with envy...

 As well you should be green with envy as today was the first day back at school for my boys!~ Was I happy? YES AND NO!!~ I was happy because they clearly were starting to get bored at home.
We however, had a wonderful summer. We saw lots of movies, went to the waterpark/amusement park once a week, went fishing, swam in the lake, and had lots and lots of visits with friends and family.
But now it's time to hit the books! I have to say both boys where excited to get back to school!~ They both have awesome teachers, and exciting things ahead to look forward too.  Here is a little :Green recap of our summer!!~Miss Jenny I did not think I was going to make your class today...but being the loyal student I try so hard to be....I made it! Thanks for hosting your rainbow alphabet party.
Jack sure turned into a master fisherman...well not quite but he is working on it.
He at least learned to be patient, taught well by his Grampa Paul!
Even Alex got a little into fishing this summer...he also made a new friend that day.  Do you think they bugged this guy much? YES they did...lucky he was kind and patient...Grampa type of guy!


And we sure ate some good food this summer! Hence the 10 pounds I now need to lose! Working on it now though.Do you have a Rita's custard near you? YUMMO.  Anyhoot, I even got to do a few green projects this summer...of course this was the BEFORE table.

 Enjoyed watching my Garden grow.........

 I sure enjoyed watching Jack and his friend learn to be creative as well. My kitchen was a disaster this day with clay and paint, but these boys had a blast!


First day of school all dressed in Green, my handsome now 8th grader Alex!!~ He advised me that tomorrow he plans on looking super spiffy....hmmmm...I wonder, wonder why??

Couple more things for the road folks.  My last post on the Before and After mirror you asked the color....
I will do a tutorial of what I did soon....this was however my base color.
Before and After party still going on HERE

Sounds like the perfect summer and the boys had a fabulous time. Sweet memories for years to come. They are both so cute. I think the 8th grader is thinking about girls, what you think. Hugs, Marty

Looks like you had a great summer. Ya know, I've seen a Rita's around here somewhere, but I've never been. We could be neighbors for all I know.

Cute family!

Yes envious for the same reason, boredom with my two...bittersweet, check me next week about that. Love the 'staches! I laughed out loud! Alex is slowly morphing into a young man right before our eyes! And Jack, little ray of sunshine that one!

My youngest started back to school today too! I hate it! I miss him so much I could be sick! Empty houses are so depressing!

I am going shopping to try and get over it;)!

Enjoy!

School starting is always bittersweet. The schools around here start next week. They don't have air conditioning though, so I don't know how they are going to stand being there ugh!! Looks like you all had a great summer.

Well, sounds like your summer was awesome but you know you have to love it when school starts back. I always did, at least. Summer with 4 kids and little money was always a challenge for me. My kids were stair-steps...oldest was 5 when I had the 4th. They sure could fuss with each other. (that was a nice way of saying they fought a lot) Anyway, I pray that they have a blessed year at school....and you have a blessed year with them at school.

Your boys are very handsome, and I'm jealous they are back to school. I still have one ornery toddlepants at home with me this year, but next year is going to be awesome.

You've got some handsome men living at your house.
Glad you and the guys had a great summer together, but take advantage of some free time for yourself now.
Love the greens around your place too. ~ Sarah

Debbie, those boys are so handsome. I was going to say adorable but I think they're probably at the age when that just annoys them!

It's so strange when they go back to school, isn't it? It's almost like the house echoes.

I'll say you had some yummy treasts this summer. Those wraps look scrumptious!

Thanks for linking Miss Debbie.

Waiting on garage sale weather so I can come back and play with your meme!

A+
