The Preschool Years....

...are coming to an end.

Next week marks the end of the preschool years. Yes it is. And it just blows my mind.

Emily was a mere baby yesterday.. wasn't she?

She has her spring show and graduation next week. There is no doubt that I will be a crying mess. Although, I said I would be at Allison's pre-k graduation, and I wasn't...that much. But this has a definite harder feel to it.. I have no more babies. I have no more kids to go through pre-school with.

But even with a heavy heart, I feel excited for the things to come. Watching Allison grow through kindergarten has been nothing but joyful. And with each phase the girls have been through - even when I didn't feel ready to watch them go and grow - I was.

Even though this big part of me is sad to see my girls grow up, the bigger part of me is excited to see them grow up... and they will always be my babies even when they are too big to carry. (Luckily with my short and small genes, they are still not too big to carry.)

Happy Tuesday!

One Step Closer

The yard sale was a success! We were exhausted, but it was worth it. And the girls had fun and made a (little) money selling lemonade.

We sold all of our biggest items, which is a great relief. Now we will just need to make a few trips to Goodwill to donate the unsellables.

This month is going to be busy. The calendar is full of various school activities, on top of really buckling down and getting this house packed up.. wasn't it just yesterday when we moved in???

Oh - and my birthday is May 18th! I will turn cough-cough-ahem years old! Can't wait!
