So many things to say about this..
Luke not only survived the
much anticipated first couple days of 6th grade, but faced them head on and embraced the experience. 〰️
Change can be hard...a new school, new classes, new teachers, the dreaded bully..
But with change, great things can happen.
New classes are exciting, new teachers are kind, the good friends outshine the bullies..
Middle school allows for more freedom. More freedom teaches responsibility and fosters independence..
While my mama heart has a little dent watching my sweet boy grow up all too fast, I’m learning to love this season with him..
Listening to his interpretation of these new experiences from better food options at lunch, seeing old friends from 2nd grade, finding comfort in the familiar faces in each class, comforting another student when he was upset, and learning which teachers will serve as mentors is reassuring and heartwarming..
Proud to belong to this one and excited to see what God has in store for you @luke_185825.

‘Twas the first day of school
alls quiet in the Sizemore house. Mommy sneaks in to wake Carter, as he’s a middle schooler now, so earlier is smarter. 🤓 “What an exciting day for you,”
she said! 🎉 “We need to quietly get downstairs & get you fed... but we don’t want to wake up daddy or sissy’s, as they are still in bed!” 🛏
Next up is daddy, looking a little ragged, soon we see him downstairs with arms full of baggage! 💼✈️ “Yea, buddy,” he exclaims!! “What a fun day.” 🤗 “Stop shrieking,” Mommy sighs. “The girls are still sleeping!” 🙄 “Where are my shoes? I need my lunch. 🥪
No one is helping.” Carter sighs a bunch. 😕
With a quick wave & a kiss, Daddy hurries out the door, then Mom rushes for a “traditional” first day of school pic (chore)! 🤣
Next we’re off to the bus stop, mommy waves & waves, and just like that, off to middle school he braves! 😢
She turns back to the house, a slight tear in her eye ... until she realizes she has 2 more kids to wake up, so off to start the whole routine again & then say good bye! 😳🙄😬😢 #weareallupearlynow
Back to school just got pretty real today...it reminded me I need to get it together and do those adulting tasks I have postponed for “when I have time “, “I need to do that____”, “those are great strategies I should try”, “that evening routine that would make everyone’s life easier in the A.M. “ Guess it’s time to be a mom at 💯 because I am responsible of what kind of human my girl will be! We are passed the stage of let’s stare at the clouds and see what animals we see along with getting those sight words memorized. We are in the NOW , time for those real talks that will shape our kiddos identity. Shout out to those hard working mammas that wear many caps 🤹🏻♀️ #jugglingact #keepitreal #middleschoolherewecome #parentingisnojoke #backtoschool #mamasluchonas
If you see this young lady today wish her a great big Happy Birthday! She is the one that changed my life forever and made me a mom 11 years ago. Hailey you have grown to be such an amazing person; responsible and caring. I love your quirkiness and passion for art. You truly are one of a kind. I can’t wait to see what the next years brings out of you my dear! Continue to make us proud by just being yourself. I love you girl. #momlife #momof3 #mybabyisgrowingup #middleschoolherewecome #inspiredbymykids #futureartist

Today we ate homegrown pineapples and soaked up our last day of summer. And when no one was watching I suddenly burst into tears because it’s all going so fast. As a young mom I was terribly focused on things like schedules and babies sleeping and what feeding method to use, and then they grew up and ate Cheerios off the car floor that had been there for a week and I realized you truly have to pick your battles and just chill out and enjoy those little people. Tomorrow I’ll drop my oldest off to middle school.....she was just nursing and refusing her nap 2 seconds ago 😆 #momconfessions #theygrowtoofast #middleschoolherewecome #momof5 #lastdayofsummer #backtoschool
He got in! Ready for Monday. 😆
Whew! Taking the oldest to middle school was just about all this Mama's 💓 could take today! However, I know he'll have a great day & stay at 🏫 because of these bad boys. #stayinschoolkids
We will NEVER do a school year without these to help keep our bodies above that wellness line. The slightest cough, sneeze, scratchy throat & we're downin these like Mom on the second day of school downin ☕☕! Seriously though, they really do stop any little malady in it's 🛤️🛤️.
Remember I've got the hook up for these beauties & I'll be back tomorrow sharing more!
for the cute graphic! Oh, & the small one totally cried when everyone left this morning 😢😢.

They said this would happen - one day you’re swaddling them and changing diapers and the next they’re getting their first locker for MIDDLE SCHOOL. Summer is almost over and I’m not ready!! Wahhhhhhhhhh
I'm trying really hard to keep my emotions to myself because I remember all to well what starting middle school was like. She's so excited which does help ease my anxiousness. #kidsdontkeep #middleschoolherewecome
Jumping into this week getting all things ready for our upcoming school year. I cannot believe I am going to have a middle schooler now!! Trying so hard to savor this sweet time that seems to be fleeing before my eyes. So glad we made it to the sunflower fields last week! Totally worth the humidity and sweat!!!
