Beautiful Day!

WOW today was beautiful here! It was sunny, cool and we had a nice soft breeze blowing today. AAAHHH I loved it! I woke up this morning, it was cool out so I grabbed some fresh tarts and turned on the burners. In the burners went caramel apple and within a short time, oh my downstairs smelled so wonderful and yummy!!! Anyone else have their burners going? I am so ready fro fall now, not only because it is my favorite time of year but because I get to burn lots of yummy smelling tarts. Since fall is right around the corner, and I may have some scent addicts here, I am going to offer for just bloggers a 6 pack of tarts for $3.50!!!! The scents you can pick from are - Apple Cider, Pumpkin Spice, Nutty Taffy Apple and Cranberry Ginger. So if you are interested just let me know. This is a great way to stock up now before fall comes.

Well today is Monday and this will be the first full week of school for the boys! I am slowly getting back into the swing of things here at home. The boys are adjusting well. No one is complaining anymore so that is an awesome thing. Now I am suspecting, the homework will start pouring in and attitudes may change but who knows.

I have one who is a senior this year and I am so proud of him right now. He is preparing to take his SAT's once again!! He wasn't happy with his scores last time or the way his SAT's went down(he was late forgot a pencil and yada yada yada) so this time he has a book to study from, he is picking colleges and taking his senior year serious so far. WOO HOO no senioritis this year for this one!!!(2 before seemed to both come down with this aliment,but both in college now so I guess they recovered enough to make it through their senior year)

Now for my youngest. He is in 5th grade and so did not want to go back to school this year!!He whined and complained and moaned for the last couple of weeks of summer. Then a few days before school was to start we finally got the paper work with who is teacher will be. Well that changed everything. All of his friends but a few are in his class. Most of the kids have been friends since first grade and are all very close and now this year they all got put together!! Yes, a few didn't but heck we can't have everything I told him. Now school is fun and the gang is back together!

Two of my son's best friends ended up in his kindergarten class and it really does make all the difference in the world. A friendly face makes any day better! After all, you have to have someone to talk to or you'll have to pay attention in class. Who wants to do that?? :)
