The Quiet Life

Okay so it was a great first day of school.  Once I got over the crying and settled into my day I kind of enjoyed myself.  Cooking dinner at 10 am makes me happy.  We had all of their favorites... it was a feast I tell ya.  And I'm kind of loving the organized day and house instead of the 'loosy goosey' summer schedule and house.  It just all feels good; as long as I don't think about how much I miss them!

And hearing them at dinner all talking about their first day.  Oh my, it's like Christmas to me.  Even Scott is filled with first day stories.  (although his are not quite as exciting as Abigail's)

I don't have a lot of time tonight to post since it's Scott's 40th birthday!!! I've got a few surprises up my sleeves that I can't wait to give him!  (I'll share tomorrow)  It's going to be super fun!  Here is my song for him today.  I heard it and thought of him.  I choose you; I love you.

Here's to the good parts of back to school! 

Roses that daddy brought home to surprise the girls with on their first day of school.  Oh it melted my heart!


  1. Happy Birthday to your awesome hubby,Tara! Please tell him for me he is an awesome daddy! : )

  2. So glad to hear that the First Day went swimmingly!!! Love the roses. Hugs.

  3. so, so sweet tara! I knew you would make his day amazing! and I haven't even see the "real" stuff yet! that song along is wonderful!!:)
    glad you have settled in and found some quiet joy. today I am debating the whole..."do I come home or stay out? out or home??" I only have about 2 1/2 hours and we live about 20-25 min from school. not sure where the best use of my time is?? I would love quiet time at home, yet would I really get enough done to justify the gas??:)ha
    can't wait to see the rest of the day that celebrates your wonderful hubby!!
    happy birthday scott!
