The past two weeks have been jam packed with activity for our family. There have been many endings and beginnings and very little time to stop and reflect. That means almost no time to write.
Even when I did have time to write, I didnt know where to start. I feel like weve undergone some gigantic shift and what comes next is more momentous than whats gone before. Were leaving elementary school behind, I have a 7th grader, Freshman and Senior now.
We are completly immersed in the world of hormones, Freshman Football, college visits, SATs, youth group outings, drivers training, dating, eye rolls, part time jobs, acne, growth spurts, and more hormones.
The weighty topics we discuss are now somehow weightier.
When we stand together, we feel like 5 people with at least one foot each in the adult world. Theres no going back.
Dont get me wrong, Im excited about whats ahead. I love seeing my kids step out into the unknown and carve their own paths without me holding their hands. They are each entirely unique, yet so alike. And its not just my kids who have a bright future: being able to have an uninterrupted conversation with my husband is beginning to sound like an attainable goal.
As I step into uncharted territory Im reminded that every day is new, whether we recognize it or not. Heres to exciting things ahead and all the moments that led to this point!
