So, I'm sitting here trying to remember what we did this week, what made it feel so busy that it's all a blur to me now? It started me on another train of thought-how fast time goes. Sometimes it's downright painful to think about it, how big my kids are getting, how long ago it seems that we got married, how my baby girl that was just born yesterday but is now turning three on Tuesday, and how my firstborn, Christine, is now two inches taller than me (and she's only 12.) It's funny because we take so many pictures and videos of the kids and yet it's sometimes so hard to look at them all because it reminds me of how fast our life is flying by us (another reason I homeschool.) But, I can say that there are wonderful things about kids getting older. You can have such amazing conversations about the Lord and you can start to see them becoming their own person with their own set of strengths and weeknesses. Another benefit is how much the older kids can help. This week for our co-op school day Christine got to teach the little kids because my friend, Yvette, was out of town. For science we were covering rainbows so she made rainbow jello cups. They turned out so cute. As hard as it is to raise kids it is so rewarding and fulfilling. I'm so grateful to be able to be home with my kids being their mommy.
