Back to School Fever

I've always loved back to school season....shopping for school supplies, breaking out the warm clothes, that feeling that fall is just around the corner. OK, so it's still going to be months before we feel even a hint of fall weather in Florida, but I can fantasize for now.

We were in Target yesterday and let the boys pick out lunch boxes. Nate is being very selective for once and is still shopping for just the right lunch box, but Reese plucked a Cars lunch box off the shelf in no time. As Jake and I were heading off to bed last night we passed the lunch box sitting on the kitchen counter. We both paused......trying to grasp that our littlest owns a lunch box and is heading off the pre-school. I have happy and sad feelings all at once.

It didn't help that we had just watched Alpha Dog and HATED the ending! Made us so happy that our kids were upstairs, tucked in and safe from the world.
