I actually love change. Too long in one "spot" seems to leave me dreaming of something new! Maybe that is why we have moved around so much.
This time we are not moving away. It is our children who are making all of the changes!
|Leaving for the MTC!|
|Saying good bye|
I am excited to see her branch out and explore her world. This is what I have been working on their whole lives~ getting them ready to make it on their own, But boy oh boy, it is hard to be left behind. I wonder and hope that I have given them the tools they will need to be happy and successful!
|It could be 3 1/2 years before they see each other again! |
Glad to know they will miss each other!!
There are always many changes with the "Littles". Our five year old is finished with preschool and getting ready for kindergarten. He is need of a bigger bike and we are even talking about taking off the training wheels! Our 2 and 3 year old are working on mastering the potty. Their favorite words these days are "Me do it" and "I do it myself"!
All of these changes are wonderful, positive, exciting and expected. I am grateful to be the mom and to have a front row seat to watching it all unfold!
I will still take out the big roll of brown paper, draw on some calendars, make some plans, fill in the days and go on my own adventures with whoever will come with with me. Maybe some geocaching, a trip to the zoo, swimming lessons and a hike in the mountains! We will continue to make more memories but I will always cherish the memories of years gone by!
|He didn't even look back!!|
Love this guy!
I hope you enjoy the changes of your day! I plan to!
