I know..I know...

Yes, I have selfishly been blogging ONLY for myself the past couple of weeks. I really apologize to all of the followers on my sidebar who I have neglected. I am making a priority this week to catch up with everyone and leave some SERIOUS comments for all my guys and gals who have been still showing up to give me some love!!!

Here comes some randomness....


I'm feeling pretty caught up...clean house, laundry done, rooms painted, school shopping, groceries and bills and paperwork are all filled out....

Ahhhh, amazing what NOT blogging does for your personal life!

I have a Kindergartner.

It's official. Tomorrow at 12:30pm, he will no longer be a preschooler.

I am really trying hard not to let it overwhelm me.

**Someone, please call to check and make sure that I left the school parking lot**

I started reading the book "Boundaries with Kids"....

I HIGHLY recommend it....GREAT BOOK and I am on chapter 3!!!

We test drove a bunch of Used cars today. Honestly, it was a pretty somber experience. Made me realize just how much our economy has really suffered. On the flip side, if you are in the market for a car, this is a great time to buy one...Still on the hunt for the "perfect" mobile for me and fam...I've informed my hubs that I need a "HOT" car...to make up for the fact that I am NOT HOT. (My 2010 pinto is on back order..wink wink)
I leave you with a photo of my boys...
both asleep in their beds, awaiting the 1st day of school.

Remember those nights..where you tossed and turned?

A prayer for my boys...and for all your kiddos too!

I pray a year of excelling academically, making good decisions, being a good friend as well as meeting new friends, putting forth the best effort and letting GOD be in all the decisions that they make. I ask that they be strong in character, desire, and playfulness to allow them to grow throughout this year.

A Kindergartner! Awe, my favorite grade.

I am praying he will have a wonderful day (and that you will leave the parking lot :)

Good luck tomorrow. I'm sending my oldest off to high school tomorrow and am feeling pretty panicked myself.

I LOVE kindergarteners!!! He will do great and so will you!!! Love their sleeping pics!

~Laura said...

Great post, cute pic and good luck tomorrow. The boys will do fine, after you drop them off, go do something to get your mind off it. Get a pedicure or something...ya know?!

Mocha Momma said...

Happy fall!

Glad you were able to catch up....now I need to do the same thing.

Carrie said...

Aw...it's so bittersweet when the youngest is in kindergarten and your 'babies' are growing up! Sweet pictures ;)

Hope they have a great first day and you don't loiter in the parking lot too long, haha!

Good luck car searching...we're about to face that soon.

{ps...I don't know what the ISO settting is for the ice rink...I think it's auto, because I honestly don't know otherwise! Sorry not much help!}

April said...

Hi Tarah!
Good luck on starting a new school year! I'm certain that all will be well!

Tracy P. said...

Tarah, is there a Moms in Touch group that meets to pray for your kids and school? If you haven't checked into it, you would love it!! Awesome post. Ditto the been away livin' life. Good for you. :-)

Darcie said...

Don't you worry about the comments. Your blog is about you and your family. The bonus is when you have time you get to leaving comments.

Hope your boys have a wonderful school year, and hope you the mom didn't go through to many Kleenexs.

E @ Scottsville said...

Tarah lives! She has NOT left the building! Woo hoo! =0)

Sweet pictures of your boys. Can't wait to hear how their first day goes. Loved your prayer for them. Amen and Amen!

He & Me + 3 said...

Loved the randomness. Cute pictures of your big boys.

Mimi said...

My oldest started his senior year today. Almost as hard as his first day of kindergarten!

Brooke said...

I know you feel good to be all caught up! I hope your boys had a great first day of school!

Life with Kaishon said...

I hope they both have wonderful years Tarah. Kindergarten. Oh my gosh. Stop it right this second. For some reason this year I am a mess. You wouldn't think 4th grade would be devestating to me, but it is. I just wish I could pause him for a while. I love him so much. I don't want him to grow up and leave me. And no, I absolutely do NOT need to read that boundries book along with you. Look how completely healthy I am.....

Kameron said...

I've been mostly absent too! Too much to do and not enough time to get it all done! Glad to see you back. Since you blogged last night, I am assuming you made it out of the parking lot. ;o)

christy rose said...

Aww! No more preschool! He will do great in kindergarten. The pictures of them sleeping are adorable.

Happy car hunting. We are in need of a new one too. But we want an 8 passenger vehicle. Those are a little harder to get.
