1st day of school

I’ve been looking forward to sending my daughter to kindergarten since she wouldn’t stop screaming at me when she was 8 months old. 

  September 002

Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating, but not by much.  To be honest, I’d been desperate to get my life on some sort of routine all summer long.  I think it had to do with the exhaustion that the 1st trimester brings, but I dreamed daily of both kids in school with Hazel napping and time for me.  And now that I have it, it’s just as good as I’d hoped for! (does that make me a terrible mother?)

We started out the festivities with a fashion show.  The kids got really into it, particularly Hazel.  It was hilarious.

Check out Sage’s heels.  That girl oozes style.

After our awesome fashion show, Jake gave the kids each a fathers blessing.  Even Hazel got one.  It was so sweet to watch her sit so quietly through it.  She knew it was something special.  Then is was an early bedtime, and off to school in the morning.

  I sure love seeing my babies growing up to be such great kids.  People say all the time that it goes to quick, but I really enjoy my kids at every stage they are at.  I wouldn’t want time to stand still, because then my sweet Sage couldn’t make all of her new friends, and Jaxon couldn’t amaze me with his knowledge and creativity.  Although, I guess I wouldn't mind if time would stand still for this little one.  I mean, come on!  It doesn’t get any cuter.

Little stinker is potty trained and is sleeping in a big bed. I never gave her permission to stop being my baby.

That is a really sweet post. We should do father's blessings. What a good idea! I never think of those unless someone is sick. But they have so much power. When Caspian was in the hospital the doctor asked us if we had given him a blessing. When we said we had he said, "Good, now us doctors will just try and stay out of it's way. I've seen more good come from those then anything we could ever do."

That is the baby I remember. Who is this other Hazel? I agree with you on all counts. It is sooo fun to watch these kids grow up and sooo fun to see who they are developing, maturing into being. However- its hard! its hard watching my baby be big! :(
I LOVED the soccer post. I love your blog and listening to YOUR voice. I can hear it and it makes me feel better!!
