New Do and Lost Tooth

Not only did she loose her first tooth but she got a sassy new "do" for Kindergarten too...Oh my, changes, changes around here...gulp~

New bob!

Another New Year

2 weeks and 6 days til school, I still just feel like time is flying by way too fast!  I start to feel panic set in right about August 1, every are a few things that run thru my mind in the middle of the night...

Another year older (ie;  one more step out the door :(  !), what will this school year bring? good or bad?  (some of both, I know for sure!) , am I prepared?......healthy foods, meal plans for dinners, snacks, pantry cleaned and organized and ready, clothes and shoes bought, backpacks, supplies, blah, blah, blah...) I should start Christmas shopping, I should order Christmas cards (the early bird gets the worm, right?!).  This year feels different as I send my only daughter out into the big, bad school world where I am not so able to control her environment, where she will be gone from me longer than she ever has in her precious 6 years of life and that is a hard for pill for me to swallow!  8 hours a day, 5 days a week....sigh.  And then theres my little guy, my last, my baby, starting his journey to Preschool (watch out world) he is a "handful" and his brother and sister are POSITIVE he will be expelled within a few weeks of starting (they are just partially kidding Friends :) )...SO much to think about, to contemplate, to plan, to organize, to rejoice in, to feel sad and nostalgic about, to just plain want to freeze time or at least slow it down...but I know I can't so I take comfort in knowing they will be in the watchful eye of Him and He will be leading them thru there little by day, hour by hour. I pray they always know His Grace, His mercy, and His love!   And as their Mama, I have a great sense of peace about just that; I know they will be OK, better than OK!  They will soar....! Here is to a "new" year!

Giving Away

Its constant, this giving away...

Click on the link below to read one of the most beautiful pieces I have ever read...Paige's blog is a favorite of mine and this post is just amazing.  I know as Mothers we have to let go but it is just so, so hard! 

Charlotte starts Kindergarten in 3 short weeks and Christian then starts Preschool...their big brother Campbell is just two short years away from Middle school.  None of those milestones seem heart is heavy with these thoughts yet I am excited for them to grow and learn and spread their wings just a little bit more with each new day that passes but it is not easy to do!

First we give them roots and then we give them wings, right?
