Growing Up




I've been fighting a pretty bad cold and cough since last Wednesday and as a result have been sleeping in the playroom at night.  Though it has been tough hacking at all hours of the night, it has been nice to wake up to sunlight through lace curtains and the pretty view of our nature table.  Here's hoping for a good night in my own bed with a solid night of sleep, though!

I finished preparing all of the children's curriculum today, printed everything out, and organized things for our first day of school.  I still would like to print up a little checklist for us to use on a daily basis, but other than that, we are ready for our lessons to begin.  It's hard to believe that we have a sixth grader, a fourth grader, and a second grader.  

I put away a basket of bath toys that have sat next to the tub in our bathroom since we moved into this house five and a half years ago.  The children are now taking fast baths or showers and are not interested in lolling around playing, so it was time to put them away (I have them under the sink for when the cousins visit), but it does feel a little bittersweet.  Our babies are growing up.  I do have to say that I enjoyed the little tableau I created during my own leisurely bath tonight.

Aw, that makes me sad! How are they already too old for those sweet animals? I remember buying Little Man the Komodo dragon last summer. Sam and Sebastian will enjoy them during our next cousin camp!

It's always bittersweet when you realize you have a category of things the children have outgrown. ((Hugs))

I hope you feel better soon! We were starting to get ready to start school but the hurricane interrupted things.
