Back to School- Ready or Not

It was just yesterday
 that we watched Landon get on the bus for his first day of Kindergarten
and we bawled all the way back to the house, 
well, some of us did anyway. 
And then the next day it was Brian.  More bawling.
And then the next day it was Leanne. 
A few sniffles, but no bawling. 
Having the house to myself for a few hours was awesome!
Then I went back to school myself.

Can our oldest possibly be in his second year of college?  
He is at Bemidji State University this semester
and living at home, yes, at home, much to our dismay AND delight.
Mostly delight.
I tried to get a picture of him on his first day
but he wouldn't cooperate. 
"Mom, I'm not in elementary school,
you don't need to take my picture anymore."

Brian's a big 'ol senior in high school this year. 
He still cooperates.
Leanne's a sophmore. 
She loves any opportunity for a photo shoot.
Alas, where does the time go? 
Bill and I certainly aren't getting old as quickly as our kids are.
Are we? 
More bawling.
