i have been quiet this week...
i have been blindsided by the busy-ness
that is "back to school"
checking out cubs for 8,
attending parent info nights at 2 different schools,
packing lunches and checking schedules.

i realize i didn't even post my usual
"first day of school" photos
but here they are...
and when i went back and looked at
last year's,
i could have cried for the subtle differences
a year can make.
