Not much to post today...up very early this morning to make blueberry muffins for the kids for breakfast. And then we are off for the girls last swim team practice. The summer has gone by so fast...everyone is getting ready for school again. The girls had such a good time...making friends and really learning how to swim well. I am amazed on how much they really accomplished this summer. I think the girls swam enough laps to cross the Atlantic ocean! It's amazing. Other than that, I am just busy with work at the county as a lactation counselor...I went back to work there. It's been great, just a huge adjustment. And of course in the back of my mind, we have school coming soon too. We usually start in September-I am a true Northerner! So, for the next few weeks we are just enjoying the sun...and the last few days of summer. God has been good this summer...in the midst of all the change, he has shown his face!

This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
