Little "Pre" School project

In preparation for Kindergarten we needed to work on our sight words so we didn't fall behind!! Lily and I turned the "work" into a little crafty project!!

Everyone else might have just plain little pieces of paper with some black letters...but not mine! We have vintage playing cards with our sight words stuck to them!!!


We ran them through the Xyron to make them all nice and sticky...

 And stuck them to the cards! I was a little sad to cover up the cute little snoopy, but the other side was just as cute...maybe cuter...so snoopy is now a sight word!

I punched a hole in the top corner and attached them to a ring - WhaLa...sight words! Now I can just add more words to the ring! when I need to!



The lighting is horrible in The Glitter Lounge right now ( it has a new location ), I need to find an electrician! Another project to add to the "After kids return to school - To Do - list"!

Today...was the day

Today was the day that Lily "Officially" started Kindergarten......my heart hurts! I cried..... She did pretty good....me on the hand, I had to leave the bus stop as soon as she boarded.... I was crying.
 I am pretty sure I saw the bus driver give some instruction to the other Kindergarten parent but I couldn't go back..


She was Adorable of course in one of her new school outfits! This morning I asked her what she was most excited about for her new school...she said..."wearing all my new clothes!".

That's my girl!



Every day will be a little different now...NONE of my kids are home with me during the day now. For the past 15 years I have had a small person by my side for all or most part of my day. There have of course been some "Ugly" days along the way where you can't believe that this is what you have signed up for...but I have NEVER been one of those Mom's who was ready for all my kids to be in school so I could do my "own thing". I actually heard a mom say that the other day and I thought to myself...Wow..that is not at ALL how I am feeling!

Not judging someone Else's feelings, those are just not the feelings I have about my kids all being gone.

Life just keeps going...faster and faster each day.

My oldest is in the 10th grade...that means only 2 more years before she will leave me and go to College!!! AGGHHH...

My boys are in Middle school together...voices are changing, their getting bigger..taking on more grownup features.
I can't take it...thank goodness they still tell me they love me and give me hugs and kisses!!!

And, now...my baby is in school...ALL DAY LONG!!!

Guess, I better find something to do with myself in The Glitter Lounge!
