Can you believe it is August !?! Are you ready for all things back to school!? I am not. Things are really different in our home, and going to change more. Our oldest moved out, got her own awesome apartment and it is so exciting for her. It her time to shine and leave the nest. Now we prepare for our middle daughter to leave for her Freshman year at college in 3 weeks. I am going from a home of 5 to 3! Although this is all part of life’s cycle, it is hard. I am able to share how I feel and can grab my emotions. I do not know how this will play out for our boy. I tried to write a little about this in a piece in this issue. I say “tried” because, so much is unknown and I am so emotional!
Friends, think of me, send me strength and hugs- this momma needs it!
These 2 pictures are from a quick weekend visit I took with 2 of my babies, we went to visit with my brother and his family. I loved seeing my nieces and nephew with 2 of my kids and was so thankful for this time together.
