My middle daughter made her first holy communion this past weekend, and in true form, I've just been too swamped with everything else to sit down and write all my thoughts about it. About the fact that she has become the true middle child of the family, has had more than her fair share of looks from me in the past few weeks that say 'I'm sorry but someone needs me more' and the struggle I've had in trying to find the right amount of 'individual' time and attention for each of my children. Especially her.
She has always been bright and conscientious, and it has been easy to let her go off on her own devices because I knew she could. But that doesn't mean she always should. This morning was the May crowning at school, and so we got to dress up again, and try a few creative shots in the flurry of this morning. Or let's just say in the flurry of the morning, 'creative shots' are all I got!
