I sent three kids off to school this week. It's still hard to believe it. Hard to believe they are old enough. Hard to believe I managed to coordinate all their supplies and backpacks. Hard to believe they were all up and dressed before I got out of bed. Hard to believe that this seems normal already.
Then it was just two of us.
I lost several games of Hi ho! Cherry-O
And realized we had probably better replace our baby swing.
When you have to pry your child out of it, that's a pretty good indication it's time to move on.
We watched the chickens leaping at our sunflowers.
And we waited patiently for the bus to bring our kids home.
We missed them.
Here they come.
