A Mommy Moment

As little feet get big and start to walk away,
Mom feels the sad side of happy.
Why the heck can't I put a blank line here? HA! Found a way.
It's summer and school's out, and I am getting to spend a lot of time with my kids. And it's good times, too; no homework hassles, lots of Beautiful Day outdoor time, lots of time to love. But man, they are growing up!

8yo doesn't need me to read to him anymore, and made potato gnocchi from scratch for the family the other night.

Shy 10yo got back from her first week at "away camp" all aglow, wanting to go back next summer.

12yo embarks on a three week trip to England tomorrow with some school classmates and a couple of amazing teachers. He doesn't even seem nervous.

14yo speaks with a deep voice, and sleeps in a lot. Once awake he is working on becoming power-tool-dude-the-second. He built some stairs that actually work.

It's scary how quickly they grow, eh? Mine are 18 and almost 20, and becoming amazing.

Gotta cherish each little step along the path, Karen. But you knew that, didn't ya?

I most certainly did. It's nice to put it into words (and pictures) every now and then.
