    On the Road to First Day of School 


    This is for:     http://ceenphotography.com/2015/01/14/cees-which-way-photo-challenge-2015-week-2/                                         

    My youngest 2 kids headed to high school and middle school on their first day of the New School year. We start in august. Lol. Behind them is one fenced in side of the farm. The mailbox I  painted for them; My son grumbled to take a picture, but finally gave in and let me do it.♥

    I just found bitly-which I had heard about , but really never connected my brain to what it was for. I tried to shorten my link above for a better blog appearance. I published the blog and the link would not work. It worked from the bitly site fine? I had to put in the long link because I really need to give credit to Cee correctly. Any ideas what I could be doing wrong. I used the copy button on the site.

      Glad he let you take the photo as it captures the memory of that day 🙂 I don’t use bitly so not sure why the link didn’t work.

        Thank You. I read how to link shorten on here, but forgot how to do it, so I thought I had hit gold when I found bitly.

      Great to have a photo to mark such a benchmark that first day back! Here’s to a great year ahead.

    Tuesday Times-The Metal School bus. 

    Now it is far from perfect and would never make the grade of the perfect ones I found on Etsy. I had to use stuff I already had,but it was fun to paint it to be ready for last Wednesday when school started. I have an excuse anyway since right behind the mailbox is a slope into a weed patch ditch ; Would you want to stumble down into a mass of stickers, poisonous vipers and, or Lyme carrying ticks, chiggers? I am trying to quit that one.

    I longed for the days when I had toddlers who would get excited and hang onto the pole , not wanting to leave what I made. Grudgingly they stood there.

    They moved away as we heard that bus. That first day of school this year was a relief for them to see the real one.
