Last night was the Closing Ceremonies of the Olympics and, even though I lost interest after the swimming and gymnastics were over, it’s always kind of a sad thing. Mark and I were talking about how different things will look in 2016 for our family:
*Ty will be TWENTY YEARS OLD. Oh my…
*Jake will be an official adult himself at 18! That’s 2 grown children, folks… where’s my brown paper bag??
*Juju will be driving
*Andrew will be a teenager
*And the babies will be starting school.
Just four short years and that will be the way our picture looks, Lord willing. I’m glad Mark and I had that conversation last night because it causes me to love and appreciate the here and now even more. Especially today, as the Westie Crew starts their 12th (yes TWELVE… man, I’m getting old!) year of homeschooling. I really love this gig. Even when it doesn’t go the way I’ve planned… which is pretty much always… it’s still such a blessing.
