september means summer's end and back-to-school. and me crying and whining inevitably. i really didn't want summer to end this year. maybe it was because this was the first full summer in our house without any boxes to unpack. maybe it was the mild temperatures that didn't really signal a true, hot summer. maybe it was the fun that the girls and i had, and i wanted to keep it going. whatever it was, back-to-school snuck up on me and i just wanted to run away. i wasn't ready for these first day of school pictures again.
these two are just gaining height so quickly. 6 and 3-and-a-half years and that time has passed so quickly. they are learning and growing and changing and displaying some beautifully awesome personalities.
and sometimes, they love each other. although crosby is all about hugs and kisses, and harper is all "ick" about them.
the bus riding this year was much easier. harper was more confident, knowing what to expect, knowing she had friends with her. no tears, no hesitation.
so here's to a new school year. as much as i don't want it to start, inevitably, we have to keep moving forward. looking forward to june already.
