Oh My - April!
Well, blogging has definitely taken a backseat this last year. For lots of reasons. Or no reason at all. Just cause. I miss it. I miss contributing to the online community, putting my thoughts out there, challenging myself and others. I miss taking pictures and editing and posting. But time has been spent elsewhere and really.. thoughts are not there. I do want to remember this time and record it and go back and read again what my days were like when my kids were 2 and 3 and 3 and 4.. 5 and 6.. So - I want to be back. Back to this.. but I promise nothing!
Look at those kids up there. Can I pause for a moment. Because they aren't babies anymore. And my heart breaks. Yes - we sleep through the night finally and I'm not wiping hiney's anymore. Amen and Amen. But.. they talk about friends and write on their own and have strong opinions. Okay - they always had strong opinios. But I miss my babies. But also, this age.. 5 and 6 years old. So. Much. Fun. The learning and doing things together and moments of growing up and reading together and riding 2 wheelers.. it's fun. it's exicting. And I look at my 2 babies and am amazed. And then they whine and cry and fight and argue and melt down in the middle of art fairs and book fairs and I sigh again. Parenthood. It's crazy.
This weekend we are gearing up for soccer games and a red carpet prom night youth fundraiser at the church. Next week I'll be back here with some May goals and Prom Pictures.
