School is officially in session now and I have to admit......I'm mourning my children being gone.
I love having them home, and if it was the right thing for them I would totally still homeschool them.
But it's not.
So, last night we had traditional father's back-to-school blessings.
Many tears were shed by my oldest 2 daughters.
They are so sensitive and feel the spirit deeply.
I'll admit, tears were shed by their mom & dad also.
