First Day of School

Twenty years ago....my little chickies leaving the nest to go to school.

Fast forward a few years, they are now leaving in shifts....
Elementary shift.... Junior high, 2 shifts of high schoolers, one driving...eeek! (and one toddler still at home)(please don't judge my scrapbook skills-ug)
All of a sudden my nest starts shrinking, as the "Big Kids" begin to leave home....
Last year my 2 "little" chickies leaving.....for two different schools.

And now my final chickie leaves early this morning for her first day in high school....Meet the newest "squashmore" at Mesa High.Bubba D is still in a coma as we speak-he starts college in two weeks.
Wow, time has flown by.....now the next generation is starting school!

She is so beautiful. Wow your baby is in high school. And I must say, I love the scrapbook page. So fun! You should see mine from the late 80's and early 90's....they would give your's a run for the money! I just dropped Abby off for 1st day of school, and so it starts!

Wow! Time does fly by. Jacob is excited about "all day" school this year. It will be my first experience with a child gone all day, five days a week.

Goodness I'm a dork. Sigh...so sad that I grew up in the 80s/early 90s....bad hair. Oh well Lyss looks FAB! Man Mom, before too long you won't be sending anybody off to school anymore...betcha never thought that day would come. I certainly can't imagine it.
