Alyssa & Wesley 2005.... her teeth are in!
Dakota on the trampoline... he has grown at least 3" ~
Yesterday several of us older moms had a meeting with the admissions director of a local college to ask questions about what is needed for our high schoolers to enter college. Dakota dropped me off and then went to a writing class. Afterwards we went to verizon because my phone was acting up.... then we went to wmart (of course we can not go to town without wmart! grrr) and on the way home I treated him to Quiznos. Just Dakota & I..... On the way home he said "this is how it would be if I was an only child, it is nice... peaceful." I reminded him that it would be lonely, that wasn't nice to say and think of all he would miss! He said "I know you are right... I would miss Mike LOTS.... and the little boys.... and the girls a little! lol" Then he said "I like it though~ it is nice just you and I."
In this picture.... five of these children are NOW married, two have graduated from home school, two will graduate next year.... only one of these children will be still home schooling in three years... all the others home schooling journey will be finished.
My time is running out.... things are changing as each one comes to the end of our home schooling journey I need to remember what is important, take the time, grab hold of the moment and make a memory!
