On my mind this week

My little pirates are off to school this week. Grammy is so proud but anxious as well. Just like with my children when they started school, I will think of them all day long. Out of the five above, four are starting school for the first time. Lil Fella, Snow White and Goose will start kindergarten. They were all born 6 weeks apart. Snow White and Lil Fella started yesterday. One goes all day and the other just in the morning. Things are different in Colorado. Our school system is still fighting to keep kindergarten as half days. Goose starts tomorrow. Her teacher is Mrs. Diddle. Snow White's teacher is Mrs. Purdy.
Not sure what Lil Fella's teacher's name is.
Now our big girl, K. Bug starts third grade. She is still such a sweet innocent little girl. I know that big changes are ahead......can we just freeze her. The youngest in this group, Miss Mabel starts pre-school for the first time. I hope they are ready for her cuteness. I wonder if she will say, "I do it" all day long. Baby Q is already back with his day care person. She has cared for his sister since she was 4 months old. She is amazing.

My son, his wife and my daughter are all teachers....one is a counselor. But, we now have a new teacher in the family. My DIL is now teaching Pure Barr classes. (Something like yoga)

I started with my new little girl yesterday. Let's say I started with the family. Dad works from home and I found out likes everything very quiet. Mom is having a hard time leaving the baby. She also works from the home. I felt a little in the way yesterday.......I am sure it will improve.

I am excited about not getting up before daylight tomorrow when school starts. I will miss seeing two of my granddaughters at school.

Still not sure what is going on with this head of mine. I have had one day free of aches. They seem to come and go now. I am ready to move on, in many ways.

Our temps are cooling off. I am sure that there wil be more hot days.......but loving the coolness.

Hoping all of you have a good week.

It seems that they grow up so fast...school has a way of showing us just how fast.

Debby, I am so sorry you are still having a time with your head. Have you considered going to a chiropractor? When my neck is out of wack, I get some pretty nasty headaches. xo

They will all be fine grandma...wishing them a good year! Fall is here too...too early if you ask me! ;D

just call me jo said...

Still hot as hell here. Grands are starting school next week for me. I would like to freeze them at this age too. It's hard watching our chicks grow so fast. Have a good week.

I still long for my sweet little grandsons as cute toddlers and here I am on Thursday taking my youngest one up to start college in Fairbanks. Freeze them now why didn't I think of that !!
I'm sure your job will improve or they will ask you to leave because you can't keep the baby quiet enough, geesh...sounds difficult to me and not really possible.

I know what you mean, Debby. It is just bittersweet, isn't it? You love to see them grow but hate to have them "leave" at the same time.

I am so sorry that you are still having headaches. I think you know I work in a hospital so I HAVE to ask...did you have a Cat Scan? If not- you might want to do that -it is completely painless and not frighening at all. xo Diana

The grands are always so cute...and I know you are proud of them!! I wish your headaches would go away also!! I know they can be frustrating. I will be praying for you!

Hugs and lovin..Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

I love the pic of your pirate grandchildren. . . so, so adorable!

Enjoy that cool weather. As you know it's still miserable here in TX. We've had 70+ days where the temps were 100 or above.

I hope you soon start feeling better. . . .
