Hello guys!! I hope everyone is having a great start to the week!
We are getting back into the swing of a “normal” week after a long weekend of birthday celebration. Zachary’s birthday was Saturday and we celebrated at the cabin and took some friends of Zachary’s with us!
On our way to the cabin we scheduled a layover in PB for lunch and the afternoon at the water park!
Per usual, the boys did not pause long enough for me to snap their picture when we got to the water park, they were off and running. And I decided to be a cool mom and not make them stop for pics. I pouted on the inside. And of course got pics of Katie!
But while we were having fun and playing all weekend, I kept saying to myself over and over,
“WE HAVE TWO TEENAGERS…HOW DID WE GET HERE SO FAST?!”
How did we go so quickly from this:
I can’t believe how fast it’s gone. Seriously. One day you are cradling your newborn in your arms, and the next they are starting Jr. High and the middle seems somewhat of a blur… Crazy.
I hope, though, that even as these boys continue to grow and mature, that they will always find the time to humor their baby sister and participate in the tea party she so lovingly laid out for them. Oh yes, these are yearbook savers for sure!! But I DID have to promise them not to put them on Facebook…they never said anything about the blog;-)
My sweet little boy has been a teenager for 2 whole days now. I am excited for his future and yet sad to see him grow more independent, which inevitably means that he won’t need me as much. But I am not going to waste a moment of that time, because I will spend it on my knees praying that God will guide Zachary and bless him. That He will protect Him and keep him safe and healthy. And that God will use him and help him to be a blessing to others. May God place a hedge of protection around him as he goes through each day.
I’m off to parent my new teenager for a little while…he has a bedroom and bathroom that desperately need his attention!
Have a good day!
