It is...

Monday night

Three boys have had haircuts

Three boys are clean and have newly trimmed nails

Backpacks are stuffed with new supplies and are sitting by the door

One lunch* is prepared and waiting in the refrigerator

Clothes have been chosen and ironed

Special blessings have been said and prayers prayed

One mom is filled with a lot of emotion

Summer is over and tomorrow two boys go off to their first day of the 2009-2010 school year

*Sam has come home for lunch almost every day for the last seven years. A new school, farther away and lunch-time activities required most days means he'll be taking a lunch and only coming home about once every two weeks. Sad for one mama and exciting for one bigtime 7th grader.
