Back to School!
















This year was the best back to school shopping ever. The kids had earned and saved up their own money to pay for their supplies/clothes. After the shopping trip, one daughter said, "I feel proud of myself!" It's a good thing they paid for themselves, because the school "fees" just about broke us! (over $1200 for seven kids in public school!). We'll have to start budgeting for school fees year round.


This song from Tarzan ("You'll be in My Heart") is "my" song with my kids. Every time I hear it, I think of each one of them and my heart smiles. I wanted to dedicate this song to each of them now as they start the school year. No matter where they are, they are still in my heart always.

"You'll Be In My Heart" is McKenzie's FAVORITE song. She sings it all the time and I sing it to her when she's upset (she calls it the crying song :)

As far as adding more pics goes, you can only add 5 at a time, but you can always add more. Just click the photo button again and upload 5 more, etc. until you're done.

Ah, a poignant time! =)

Fortunately, my kids have two more weeks before school starts up again, so I get to enjoy more time with them. Those grade changes really do emphasize the passing time though. It's like a reverse countdown....
