Times are a changin'

My family is changing quite a bit. It's not recent or sudden - it's been a gradual process simply because they are growing up.

Next week my baby will be 14 years old. I can hardly believe it. He did something very adult this week and flew BY HIMSELF to Washington, DC to participate in a young leaders conference. He is learning so much there and showing so much maturity. Except - he is texting and calling his sister instead of his MOTHER while he is gone. HUMMMPHH. I really am very happy they have such a great relationship. And I'm glad he is so independent.

Now his sister is another thing. She will be a licensed driver within the month. Pray now, please. She will also be 17 at the end of this month. Yes, we delayed the driver's license thing. It was for the best and we all (especially those who share our roads) are okay with it. But now she wants a car. More changes for her: She has a steady boyfriend. He treats her like a princess which is good or her Daddy would fix that for her. We are looking at colleges.

More stuff at school is going on... more change... which I can't blog about now at the moment but be sure when I am free to type about it, you, my blogging audience will be sure to know. *looks intently* Hey, is there anyone out there anyway?

Oh and I got new hair again :) It was my coping mechanism while my baby was flying all by himself to Washington, DC. Okay - I know I said that already but I'm a mommy, okay?

Good - night!

I was watching your girl child sing yesterday and thought "Hmmm, she really looks like her momma"

I tell ya, all the changes are overwhelming at times. I am in a weird place looking at all the things to come with DD first year of high school next year. Trying not to freak out!!!

sorry it took me so long to read this, I did not notice your new post until this morning!
