New School Year Reflections

This is a big day for us!  My oldest is now a HS senior and my 'baby' is in 9th grade!  This morning after we prayed as a family, they squacked when I ran to get the camera!  I can't help it!  The mom in me wants to capture every moment I can this year.  I know I can't freeze time, but I also know this year will fly by.

These times are so important.  I wish teenagers could understand how the decisions they make right now affect their entire future.  It seems strange that we know a teenager's brain is not fully developed yet, but they have the responsibility of decisions that they need a complete brain to make!

I am so thankful for my boys and I cherish the time we have together.  I am attempting to slow down and put certain things on hold as I create memories with them in the time I have left to be with them!
