A different kind of August....

Today I'm borrowing my title from Ann @ On Sutton Place
When I saw her post title on my side bar I said to myself
Boy it sure is....
For Ann it's her one year Anniversary of her Etsy shop
Congrats Ann! 
I'm a big fan of supporting Etsy

But for ME my AUGUST
means the count down is getting closer....
15 days closer today! 

has involved list and more lists
shopping.....last couple things left..

is all about packing
and organizing

is about spending every minute 
she allows us to have

is about cherishing 
giving last minute advice
teaching her to sort whites and darks
teaching her proper temperatures
teaching her to iron

It's a different kind of AUGUST 

I'm gonna miss her....

Kathy I don't know what you are going through but my heart feels for you. Things will be different in a few days but I can but the first person she calls when she is happy, in doubt or a tad upset will be you, her mom. hugs my friend. xo

She'll be back Kathy ~ I promise!!! I love how you are teaching her to nest ~ teaching her the little things that we do.

We have to let our babies grow wings ... so that can fly back home to us! : )

Happy August. I think that mr west is going to have to get you a puppy!!!! : )


This is a turning point for you both. Treasure the moments spent together before she heads off to college. You will have to adjust to her being gone. A NW different. Take care.

We'll be here to hold your hand when she takes are such an amazing mother and you should be proud in that fact and knowing you raised a very smart and capable young woman :)

Joanna Jenkins said...

It's such a big step-- for both of you. Katelyn is beautiful and you've done such a great job of raising her. I know it won't be easy but I also know you'll be bursting with pride as she takes off for college.
I'm cheering you on, Mom! Hang in there.

I have my heart in my throat for you! I hope you all do well with this adjustment. The good news is that 85% of college students return home to live after college. haha!

Thank Goodness for all the prep so that we can make sure our college bound are ready to leave and that we are ready to let them leave!

Mark said...

I know...I know. Hang in there mom.
