Showing Off The Beauties

Today was the first day of school for my girls. I know. It's the middle of August! Let's just not go there.

But it was the first day of school. I sent one off to junior high for the very first time.

And, I sent one off to high school for the very first time.

Be still my heart.

Just yesterday my girls looked like this...

And today - like this...

Our home is a'changin. No more Dora The Explorer or coloring books. No, now we have Wii Just Dance and volleyballs hanging around the house. And I'm sad. And I'm happy.

I feel like the first day of kindergarten all over again. The loss of something so precious....yet the welcoming in of a bright future full of possibilities.

I have been so blessed. SO blessed. I don't take lightly the responsibility of raising my children. I take it very, very seriously. But it's been such a joy - such a blessing. Even though it's speeding by far, far too fast.
