Goodbye to my little kids and hello to my teenagers
Goodbye to being followed around the house and being adored as a parent
Goodbye to kids crawling into bed with me in the morning
Goodbye to toys and imagination games
Goodbye to wanting Mom to help
Hello to amazing older kids
Hello to thoughtful conversation
Hello to more time and independence
Hello to slamming doors and rolling eyes
Hello to cell phones and texting conversations
Hello to life discussions starting late at night
Hello to hormones, emotions, children growing up and becoming their own people.
Hello to a new stage of life for our our family
Hello to new adventures…
This week was the start of his freshman year of high school…
The week was the start of her first year in middle school…
She insisted on walking alone with her friend to school on the first day…
Wow, huge milestones! #SimpleThingsSunday
I know how you feel. My Blessing turns 11 tomorrow and I know the older child days are coming upon us soon. Lovely shots.
Time slips by so quickly, but we are so blessed to stand witness to their unfolding.
What wonderful captures and tribute to your children!… it’s amazing to witness the beautiful transitions of our little ones.
