It has been so long since I posted on this blog, I am not at all sure I remember how to do it! We are winding down the last two weeks before school starts. It is with mixed emotions that I approach this. My daughter does better with the structure of school......I guess I am just not exciting enough for her :0)......yet I am sad to see the summer end. Maybe I am realizing how quickly K is growing up and how soon she will be leaving the nest and spreading her wings to fly. Maybe I am just tired and need to go to bed! Two more weeks of summer and then we are back to the schedule and constrictions of the school year.
Our friends from church just had a baby girl this weekend, maybe that is what has me thinking so much. I want to tell them to hold on to her tightly and to cherish every minute because they will blink and she will be a teenager. Yet I know that if they hold her too tightly they will crush her spirit....it is a delicate balance to hold them tight enough that they feel secure yet allow their spirits to flourish and soar! I know my friends will do fine with their sweet baby girl, just as we have done fine with ours.
