It's a Good Life

I went to Middle School Orientation today...or rather, I dropped my almost 12 year old daughter off at the curb of her new middle school this morning...by herself...no hand holding, no carrying her bags...no tying her shoes or helping her cross the street...definitely no feeding her applesauce & yogurt in the morning or wiping the drool from her chin...
 
my baby isn't a baby any longer...she's almost as tall as me and "needs" me in a completely different way now...
 
where did the time go?  Life just kept going and I forgot when she couldn't say her "L" sounds correctly and I forget what her little pudgy hands looked like...that she could make a cute little scrunched up nose-face when she was being ornery...
 
It goes by so, so fast...
 
I love taking pictures...I love when everyone looks their best and you have this "art" to grace your walls...but do you know what is on most of my walls???
 
Pictures of my kids just being WHO they are everyday...jumping in leaves, giggling at waves on a beach, cuddling with their dog, sucking on their fingers, making sauce in the kitchen with daddy...
 
THESE make up the moments of their life!  And I want to freeze time and remember it!
 
This sweet little guy's mommy and daddy feel the same way I do...I LOVE LOVE LOVE going over to their home and just capturing little "W" doin' his thing!
 
His Mommy is coming to my class in a couple weeks and I have a feeling she won't need me any longer to come and "document life" for her, because she's going to be doin' it all herself...
 
and I'm thrilled...
 
YES, I'm sad that I won't be the one getting to see it all through my own lens, but by golly, the moments WILL be captured...They will have these sweet little remembrances of a time when he was just growing and living the "good life" :) 
 
He's adorable...they make an incredible family....and I am beyond blessed to know them!!!
