Last Day of School for the grandsons here in NC

It is hard for me to believe that my daughter, my baby's oldest son is going into High School when school starts up again. Very proud of the young man he is becoming. When school starts, all five boys will be in school. Collin starts High School in 9th. grade, Kyle is in Middle Schhol,going into the 7th. grade. Cody is going into 3rd. grade. Quinn is starting Kindergarten and CJ will begin his schooling in pre-school. They grow up so fast. So much fun watching them grow up but it is also bittersweet. They will be grown and out on their own before I know it. We all need to cherish the moments we have with the young people in our lives.

I am so ready for summer. Are you?

I made this today. I used an older paper pack from CTMH ( I think it was Blue Ribbon ) Loved that set. Butterflies were stamped with CTMH Acrylic Stamp set "Whimsical Wings" B1307.
