The Big Day
Like most moms I know, I was left with a quiet house this morning as I wondered how in the world I have a 2nd grader and a 5th grader! It's so hard to see them growing up so quickly, but such a blessing to see them doing exactly what God made them to do.
And here is one of those moments I could just kick myself for not having my video camera out. My two little guys waited outside for the three school-bound peeps to drive off. Sam was so excited that he just waved at the neighbor until Daddy finally drove by. I thought he might be upset that two of his favorite people were leaving without him, but he didn't seem to mind one bit.
There they go! One more day in the record books.
Bye, Daddy! Bye, Nannie! Bye, Da! This boy is literally too big for his britches (mainly because his mama won't buy him pj's that fit.) Before I know it he'll be standing alone, waving to that monkey boy behind him. And then, one dreaded day, only Mama will be left to wave and yell goodbyes.
And then she'll go the store by herself and get her workout in and read her Bible and clean the whole house and listen to whatever music she wants until 3:00. Okay, that doesn't sound so bad.
