Our babies are growing up

Earlier this week I registered our youngest for kindergarten.  Wow, what a step!  It's hard to believe that the baby stage of my life is truly over.  Next year all five of our children will be in public school (kdg, 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th).  A large part of me is excited about this next stage in our lives - our oldest in her senior year of high school, second one in her first year of high school, third one going into band, forth one not far behind, and our youngest in school full-time.  Understandably, this is also mixed with a little sadness.  My little girls are growing up faster than I could ever imagine.  It's hard to believe that next year our oldest will be graduating from high school.  It's also hard to believe that our youngest will be entering school.   At the same time that this is all going too fast and I'd love to slow things down, I'm very excited and looking forward to guiding our girls into their adulthood.


  1. It is really odd to have everyone out in the morning. It was a big mommy transition for me, but not a bad one after the first couple days.

  2. Hopefully I won't have too much down time. I've decided to put my teaching certificate to work and substitute teach in our school district this fall. The best part is that I can say no if I want to go on a field trip or if someone is home sick.
