Just Random Stuff: Mid-May Edition

I haven't done one of these for awhile, so I'm hitting you with one today.  Just to get some things off of my mind.

First, May in Colorado.  You never know quite what to expect.

  • I know I make comments about wanting my kids to stay little, and I comment on being sad when they go having big birthdays (like 18!!  Oh, my!) and all.  It doesn't mean I don't want them to grow up.  I know that is the goal in parenting, and I embrace that.  But I can still be sad for a moment now and then as I realize how fast it happens.
  • All of my children are now using Notgrass American History.  Richard and Trina are using the middle school version and the teens are doing the high school one.  I have truly missed having them all studying the same basic history.  Really missed it.  One way or another, this will continue.
  • I am so relieved that AWANA and AHG are over for the summer.  Cannot begin to express how much of a relief that is.
  • Life is short.  Hug your kids.  Tell your mom and dad you love them.
