Foundations



 It's finished...

the school year has ended...my oldest will join the ranks of the "top dogs" of middle school next year...My middle girl has graduated from elementary school and heads into the unknown waters of the 6/7/8th grade building, with an overflow of new students coming from all over the school district...my 'baby' is heading to 2nd grade...

and I can't believe time won't just stop for a second...to just let me catch my breath!!!

It's been a whirlwind of excitement and preparation for this last week of school...everyone counting down days...until it arrives...

the moment everyone has been waiting for and all of a sudden reality hits...the weightiness of it all...the significance of all this time and effort and planning...

My girls are growing up...needing me in different ways...my comforting their "hurts" looks a lot different than it did when they were itty bitty...it's not that the hurts are any more painful than they were with ouches and booboos...it's just that these "hurts" come in the form of change and independence and building their character...

I look back on sessions like these with a heart full of gratefulness..for children who find such joy in the simple things...where daddy can make every heart ache go away with just a funny face and butterfly kisses...where mommy seemingly knows all the answers to all the questions of life and can solve a problem with a cuddle...

I remember my time with this family because it was genuine and simple and easy...

it was a moment in time, where I could step back and watch parents building a foundation with their little ones...just baby steps, but ones that will last a lifetime...

time does goes fast...but, it was a reminder that foundations that are laid early, make the time lapse, not as painful...it makes the "changes" bearable and the journey that much more meaningful!
