SummerTime Flies.....

August is here and school is near.

With summer almost coming to an end it's bittersweet I love spending time with my oldest. I'm excited about what is to come of his new school year. I know everyone is starting to do their school shopping and all the kids are starting to get those first days of school jitters.
Right now my son is going to the second grade so he's knowing we still have a whole month of summer left and acting all nonchalant about being nervous for school, but he's starting to get a little clingy. that's how I know it's almost time to go back to school. He doesn't hate school, he just hates the process of going to bed on time and not being able to stay up late and watch all his shows. like a normal kid.
Back to school shopping which I am a mother of I better do it early than late, so I already did a little school shopping at the beginning of the summer I got half of his school supplies which is a lot of stuff for a second grader, but I know have of the stuff is for the kids to be able to share but really, that's how it goes. and a couple of shirts and pants so that way when we finish up school shopping we just have to get a few things not everything at once. However, there is nothing wrong with that I use to love to do that when I was little with my parents because you get all your clothes and shoes and everything and it seems like you went on a big shopping spree and it gets you in the mood for school.
What I like to do for my son which is kind of a tradition for my family is after we get all his supplies and school clothes I let him pick out which outfits  he wants to wear his first couple of days of school because school always lands in the middle of the week so he only goes a couple of days. So once he picks out his outfits I let him try it all on and do a little fashion show and it gets him all excited for school. what kid doesn't like shopping or getting to wear their favorite shoe or backpack because I know a lot of schools now are going uniform which is ok but were is the fun of going school shopping anymore if you just go shopping for supplies and backpacks maybe the shoes but even the shoes are a one brand black or white shoe. maybe the schools go uniform to stop bullying because all kids can't have the fancy clothes but it kind of takes the fun of school. Even though school is for learning it doesn't hurt to feel good about your self to help you focus on learning and something that makes you be different if everyone is the same it makes its boring. the truth is that every parent is getting excited to get some peace and quiet for a couple of months because the first three months our kids are just getting used to being back in school and making new friends and trying really hard on being a good student and studying but once the Thanksgiving and Christmas break comes that is when our children are going to be back to running and being loud and not trying there best and we are going to have to re-correct them which is ok it just shows their having fun.
Summertime flies and school time is back, at last, I hope everyone has fun shopping and getting their kid's school ready.

I am reviewing this book for free for Chris Roy for a honest review and that is exactly what I am here to do.

When I saw the book cover of Her name is Mercie it intrigued me and the title pulled me in. 
I love to read book that have to do with mystery, crime scene an a good twist. something that keeps me at the edge of my seat wanting to read more.

Her name is Mercie is a book that is 162 pages of the characteristic I just listed above it is a book of five short stories that each character has it's own twist, turns and realness you can't even a imagine. But one character takes the cake for me.
Right when you start reading the first chapter you are pulled in to a scene just like a movie a lovely older couple that has liv…

Who put this shame
In between my shoulder blades
Sliding down my spine
Embedded in my DNA
Was it my mother
Dental assistant
Four- day weeks
What did she sacrifice
For her children
Or was it my father
Strong Hands picked tobacco
Six days driving trucks
He never owned.
I am the first
To uproot from red dirt
To explore foreign lands
To swim in cold water
Still I cannot carry
This guilt that crumbles
Heavy in my hands
Crushes me tender
Year after year.
