Three Favorite Things

I get really antsy when change is coming, and I think Ashley starting kindergarten is making me that way. I can't really pinpoint what I am feeling at this point. Part of me is excited, and the other part is wondering where in the hell the last five years went.

With the unsteadiness comes my inability to finish anything I have started - I can't begin to list the projects I need to finish. I am slacking in my schoolwork, I can't keep up with my personal email, the dining room still has curtains to sew from weeks, maybe months ago at this point.

But unloading pictures off my camera, I came across this one, and at this point, all that matters are these three "things" in my life. No matter what change is coming, this is my family.

I love how Ashley is peeking over Ray's shoulder.

Kindergarten is a huge milestone - for kids and parents. It's understandable it may be leaving you a tad unsettled.

I love that picture.

I cried and cried and cried when the Twinship started Kindergarten and they were like, "Bye mom! Have a nice day!"

It's much harder on the parents that on the kids, IMHO.

You have such a beautiful family. What a great photo, and a great way to look at life. Family IS what's important.

What a beautiful picture of your family!! And yeah. I remember my daughter's first day of kindergarten like it was yesterday. It was 17 years ago. But at least I have it on video!! It leaves everyone unsettled I think...
