It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Most people would be annoyed, but this morning I woke up with a smile when at 6:30 am 120 ROTC cadets came running past my bedroom window calling cadence.   How can you not when they are chanting in that soldier way "I hate some people cuz they're not in the ARMY!  I love my wife cuz she's not in the ARMY!"  Kind of threw me off and made me laugh... then I stopped and listened to make sure they didn't wake the baby up... it had been a really long night -- I think inhaling two jars of bananas took it's toll on the little guy, poor little dude.  But he won't be doing that again any time soon!  And they didn't wake him up -- many thanks to our white noise maker!

I don't know about you, but I love this time of the year!  Summer coming to an end, that fall smell floating in on the breeze, and better yet back to school!  I have put up with so much bickering this summer with the boys... and by "boys" I mean all three big ones, hubby being the biggest!  This summer I have dealt with tattling to the max!

"But Sam started it!"


"Nephi wouldn't do what I said!"

So I would have to sit down the tattler and say, "Ben you are a big boy, you should be setting an example for your children.  STOP TATTLING it's driving me nuts!"

Good grief!  Thank the heavens and all the stars that all three of them are going back to school this week!!  My sanity was on the brink of shattering... I have hope!


I can't help but keep thinking about this old ad that I used to think was funny, now I think it is hysterical!!

Happy Back to School everyone!
