For instance, I can't believe that today was the first day of school for my little first grader! I vividly remember first grade (probably the first year that I really truly remember most things) and I can't believe that my little boy is now that age.
|It's the Circle of Life and all that jazz.|
In July, the kids and I took off to Albuquerque, New Mexico to visit my BFF, her husband, and her new baby (aka my unofficial niece)! It was my son's first flight, and he loved it. According to him, when we were above the cloud cover, we were in Antarctica.
I just have to say that I love New Mexico. I know that's not a popular opinion, but I really liked the Albuquerque area. I'm already actively earning frequent flyer miles in order to go back next summer and hopefully explore the area a bit more than we were able this time.
Then, after we got back from visiting them, my BFF+family happened to come back to California for some adventures, so I got to spend my birthday with them too. It was wonderful to be able to spend so much time with them since we're living so far from each other. We used to be fairly inseparable during high school and (my first time around) college.
So that fast-forwards us to now. Time to get back to the school grindstone. Classes start on September 2nd (!!) in our brand-spanking-new Science and Nursing Building, and I, for one, am ready to get back to it. It's been a long transitional summer for me, and it's time for Second Semester.
