The talk on most of the blogs and IG is of sending kids to school! Some parents sound thrilled, like it's the "best time of the year," others rather emotional to be sending homeschoolers off to high school and their first exposure to 'public education.' My children did go through the public education system and it was both a positive and negative experience. Public education  is not for every child or family as homeschooling is not for every family. I feel for Moms though, sending your first children off to high school is a real mile stone. I realized how fast time flies seeing my first off to high school  and in a blink of an eye my three children were graduating from college! I still have many mixed emotions about the fact that I'm not only an 'empty nester'( not sure I qualify  as an empty nester after a decade of having the nest empty)  and now a retiree. I love being retired but knowing that I have more years behind me than in front causes me pause. Life aways seems to have tension, yin and yang, positive and negative.....
I love having our baby GD here everyday, such a joy and gives us something to do all day. Yes, I do take a nap when she goes home. 

Labor Day Weekend was full this year:
Rockies Game in Denver
Homemade Pizza
Oven Cleaning
Chia and Breakfast with a dear friend
Cast on for baby boy knitting
Basement Cleaning
Blinds getting cleaned, (yeah!).
Sometimes I really enjoy cleaning and organizing, I just don't keep up with all cleaning on a regular basis. September seems to be my month to clean though, always has been. Maybe it's nesting for the winter, I'm not sure. I really don't want to question my fall cleaning mania, just going with it .
To all us Mama's in what ever stage of life-lets be kind to ourselves!

I have seen young kids using the same necklace as you child and wonder if it's good for teething??? We will have our first grandchild soon and wonder if that would be good for her but don't know where to buy. Very interesting blog with great photos!
