A Quiet Quiet Morning .....

My house is very quiet right now. Very, very quiet. It feels a little empty. I'm sitting here with a stack of papers, making phone calls, getting things done.

I miss the noise. Sorta. I miss the chaos. Sorta. I do. My babies are all growing up so fast and my house is quiet. :(

    I don't know exactly how you feel because I'll still have one little guy at home this year. But I've been thinking a lot about it.

    I think I've finally started to really adjust to the noise and the constant interruptions and the not-being-able-to-get-more-than-three -things-done-in-a-day and then the kids go and grow up! And leave us alone with a lot of quiet. It's really wierd.

    I bet that is strange.

    My son starts school in 2 days but my daughter will be home with me so it won't be totally quiet.

    The first day of school is always bittersweet.

    Mine don't start until next week and a good thing too because I haven't done any back to school shopping yet.

    Enjoy the peace and quiet!

    What a beautiful family you have! Adorable kids! Enjoy the silence. And eat some of the kids' candy while they're at school. ;-)

    I totally know how you feel. All summer I prayed for the silence and now I hate it. My youngest started this year so I'm feeling the empty nest :(

    I feel the same.

    Other than doing research for my book, I haven't a clue what to do since mine went back to school on Monday.

    I feel kinda lost and the house just suddenly got too big.
