I am seeing my life change right before my eyes. We are moving out of the little kid stage of life and into bigger kid stuff. It is a good thing don't get me wrong, just different. Gone are the simple days of staying home, playing and trying to find things to fill the time until dinner. Boy did I think those days were long at times. Ha! They've got nothing on my days now. My days are now filled with time in the car and time spent sitting. I counted up today I spent 5 hours driving kids somewhere or sitting and waiting on kids. Yes, 5 hours in the car or sitting in a hard chair. It is a very different kind of long. But I wouldn't trade it for anything!! I love seeing my kids thrive at school and in activities. To do that I have to get them there and wait on them so that is what I will do. I am thankful that I can do it! I am excited to see what this new stage of life looks like. A stage not marked with diapers and playdates but with growing, independent children. It is going to be great!!
