I started blogging five years ago. At the time, my children were 17, 15, and 9. Where did the time go? Nathan will be 22 on May 1st, Stephen just turned 20 and Emily will be 14 at the end of May. Just like that they are grown!
They used to be at the center of almost every post I did, but now the boys are busy and out of the house most of the time. They are at a very weird age where they want independence and anything that mom says sounds like she's trying to treat them like they don't know anything. You know what I mean, right? Dan & I are those old people who really don't know what we are talking about. I remember being the same exact way. I think it wasn't until I had children of my own that I really believed my mother had any sense at all. LOL!!!
They absolutely HATE getting their picture taken anymore which is why the pictures of them have been scarce. Emily too is at that self-conscious age so every photo requires looking just "so" before I take it! By the time she's ready, I'm on to different things. :-)
Yesterday, Emily received a packet in the mail from a Christian college. I thought, "This has to be a mistake." It turned out to be an informational package about the college and urging her to choose them.
It is so weird. In my mind, she is still little but she will be going into 9th grade. Time moves so quickly.
Just as I picture my kids younger than they are at times, you know that I'm much, much younger too!
I mean I know I'm certainly not aging, so how can my children be? ;-)
