It's been so long since I've said hello, I am a bit embarrassed to show my face again. Things have slowed down a bit for now around here. My summer classes are finished, softball is over, and the beginning of the new school year looms conspicuously in the not-so-distant future. I am trying to do as much reading for fun as I am able to because I know my time will be severely limited in no time.
We are taking on a home improvement project at the moment as well; my youngest's bedroom. It had two layers of ancient wallpaper that we removed and now we are repairing damaged plaster areas and patching holes. Oh the joys of an old home! So I guess my busy is just different busy for now.
My girls are growing up into young ladies. My oldest just finished drivers-ed and got her farm permit. She will start high school this year. My youngest is in junior high now. I am not sure anything can prepare you for the time when you realize your babies are all grown up. It just kind of hit me this summer. I am particularly sentimental anyway, so this is quite an adjustment for me this summer. Letting go is hard. It is natural and necessary, but hard nonetheless. I would welcome any suggestions for dealing with teenage girls, driving, boyfriends, and drama in general. I am afraid things will get worse before they get better!
