They Are All "OFFICIALLY" Back To School Today! #back2school

I can't believe the summer is over already!

No products were sent for this review/feature!  I was not compensated in any way by posting our back to school day with my readers.

Today started with an alarm clock sounding, a pot full of coffee (set with a timer) brewed for sipping, six excited & anxious kids, and two parents who were torn about how they feel with summer being over!  
This year, we have five schools (YES 5), and have a 10th, 9th, 8th, 6th, 5th and 4th grader in our home. 
I LOVE OUR BIG BLENDED FAMILY!
I'm not the kind of mom who will join the other moms for Margarita's to celebrate the first day back for the kids.  
I mean, I really enjoy spending the extra time with my kids during the summer months.  So when they go back, I tend to get a little sad.
I know that my time with them in limited...because there are only SO many years till they are grown up.  Our oldest will be turning 16 this month.
So this morning, I've already done some cleaning and some baking too.  
I love making them freshly baked chocolate chip cookies for the first day of school snack!  
Don't worry, I've got strawberries all ready to join them on their plates...so they get a little bit of healthy with their afternoon snack too.

DO YOU HAVE A BACK TO SCHOOL SNACK YOU MAKE FOR YOUR KIDS?

But now I sit and wait for the clock to tick down to when I can go pick them up, hear all about their first days, who they saw, how their teachers are, etc.  

I have no doubt this school year will zoom by just like the last...and soon it will be summer again, with pool parties & no alarm clocks to wake to!  
With all that being said, it does feel good to get back on a schedule again...even if it means for early wake ups every week day morning!
But seriously, our puppy doesn't know what to do with herself...
the house is way to quiet for her liking too!

When do your kids go back to school this year?
