Well Summer is officially over as I say farewell to my oldest daughter who entered 5th grade today. I can barely believe how fast the time went! Next year I’ll bring my second to the bus for Kindergarten and then before I know it all three of the kiddos will board buses and leave me for the day.
I have to admit I do like being back on school schedule. It helps to keep structure around the house and the calendar seems a bit less overwhelming now. I do hope Miss Hunter (far left) and her fellow musketeers have a phenomenal year! They all still adore playing on the playground, reading books all night and creating endless dance routines. What more does a girl need in life? I encourage them NOT to grow up too fast and strive to be the best kind of people they can be.
In honor of school back in session I’m trying to get some cupcakes made for when she comes home… now if only I could pick what flavor!?
In less than ten days my oldest daughter will be two digits… the big 1 0 ! As much as becoming a teenager seemed like a big deal when I was younger, it seems these days preteens are ruling the scene. Hunter is an amazing daughter and the best big Sister to her younger siblings. We always felt, however that she did a horrible job preparing us for what being a parent was all about because she was “too good”. lol we never remember hearing the words ‘no’ from her or having to reprimand her for much of anything. Perhaps that was because she was the only child and therefore gained all of our attention? The world may never know but the fact is that with 2 toddlers now in the mix we definitely turned Hunter’s world upside down too. 🙂 She took it all in stride and has the perfect amount of patience to help out with them but also find her me-me time which is crucial. She keeps my world sane at times and is a beautiful soul. Her love of animals has never changed and we all still assume that she will one day be a vet or run the hugest animal shelter in the world! I’m so proud to be her Mom and watch her take on new challenges without a fear in the world.
So much for wordless right? 😉
A proud Mom who can’t believe how fast 10yrs flew by!
