Good Monday Morning! (A Big one!!)

Good Morning to you all!

Well today is the first day back at school for Ryan, Conor, Mark and Katie!!  Cara starts her first day tomorrow!  Cara is delighted as she has Laura, Abby and me all to her little self lol!!  It was so odd not waking James up for school!!  He finished his last year of school forever back in June.

James did very well in his A-Level exams and has gained a place on an Honors Degree Civil Engineering course at Queens University in Belfast.  He is having a year gap this year so the course starts this time next year!  I am glad becasue I am not too sure if I am ready to let my big (little) boy go yet lol

On the grandaughter front .... Abby is doing amazing :)  She is growing so fast!!!
