Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea


School is back in session here.  It's bittersweet.  Sam will love it and do well,
but I really can't believe he's in 1st grade...

"In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test.
In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson.”
Tom Boddett





I'm really looking forward to some mom-and-Luke time, but it is just so hot. 
The pool isn't even a good idea b/c the water is like a warm bath.  Thankfully, 
he loves drawing, doing puzzles and building with Lego blocks.

I am craving long-sleeves right now.  It's a long way away, tho!




 Not on Facebook.  Never gonna be on Facebook.







Enjoy your weekend...and stay cool.

Oooh. I'm so not ready for back to school. We have another month of summer here.

I'm not a Facebook fan either. The thought of it makes me feel like I have no clothes on. eeek

happy friday

Love the Tom Bodette quote! I may have to steal it at some point. School already?! Sam is a super cutie!! My Max will go into 1st this year too, I feel you!

While we are really enjoying the summer, I can't wait for it to get cooler again. It's just way too hot (and humid!!) here at the moment...

Love the Bodette quote --so true!

Tomorrow, I'm leaving for a family reunion, where I will finally know the names of my many, many cousins, thanks to FB :) That said, I respect your decision not to join.

I'm craving long sleeves, too; it's been so hot (or pouring rain) this summer...

Have a great weekend!! thanks for linking up :)

My favorite weather is late Sept early Oct... breezy... long sleeves .... my new 501 button flys... but the sun is still shining! ;) and the wind is blowing my hair... ah... I love fall! one more month!! ;)

Dysfunctional Mom said...

I love the "shoot for the moon" pic.
Why no facebook? I LOVE it!

mimbles said...

My sleeves aren't long enough at the moment, I'm wearing 3/4 ones and I really need another layer on but I'm too lazy to get up and fetch one.

Swimming in too warm pool water on a hot day is horrible, that's why I much prefer the ocean for mid-summer swimming! Helps that we live more or less on the coast of course :-)

Dawn said...

Oh, girl! I'm sooooo over the heat. Bring on the crisp cool air! ahhh..

I can't believe Sam will be in the first grade. Then again, I can't believe my Courtney will be in the seventh! Oy!

I love FB more than blogging. SHOCK! LOL! I love the interactions with my real life friends and even some of my online friends.

Wow, school already! I don't have any school aged wee ones yet. But I always get excited about the back to school shopping sales, and of course the COOLER weather. Our kids start the last week of August. But I can remember when I was in school we never started until the Tuesday after Labor Day.

He & Me + 3 said...

I'm on facebook, but not enough to be considered on facebook. LOL
It will be nice to have some one on one time. Enjoy.

Serendipity is Sweet said...

Wow, school already? I hope he has a great year! It's super hot here too. Ready for Fall and cooler temps :)

Have a great weekend!

Lin said...

They don't go back to school here for another 2 weeks. I'm looking forward to the cooler weather too, I'm way over the hot summer!

Nicolle said...

I am on FB again. Sometimes I love it, and sometimes I hate it. I am wishy washy for sure.

Our babies grow up fast, don't they?!

have a good weekend!

Mama Zen said...

We've still got two more weeks of summer break, but it's too hot to do anything!

Kristi {at} Live and Love...Out Loud said...

First grade! How exciting!
And the pool? You're right...it's like a warm bath. In fact, my baby's kiddie pool water was hot. I refused to let her get in. Now that's ridiculous!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day.

I am so looking forward to fall!

brainella said...

We don't start school for another two weeks. I wish everyone started after Labor Day...

Have a great weekend!

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

Georgia is August is hot fun! It kills me that they have to start school in this heat!

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

Man, I must be drinking! That's supposed to say Georgia in August is not fun!!

Unknown Mami said...

I'll tell you what, I'll wear long sleeves and dedicate them to you.

Jen said...

Great quote! Hope the school year is off to a good start! have a nice weekend!
