Kids Growing Up

This is such a bittersweet week for me. My oldest, Z, went to Science Camp with his class this week. I am so sad he is not here, but am so proud of him! He was so excited and so ready to be totally responsible for himself for the week. I am so very blessed to have been given this amazing little man (well not little, he's almost as tall as me already) to rear. He has such a good heart, great sense of humor, super academic ability, and is also turning out to be a very handsome young man (I knew he would be!). I miss my "bug", but I know he will have the time of his life exploring nature!

So today I am grateful for a wonderful son and hoping this week goes by quickly for his mama!

Head on over to Laura's to see what everyone else is grateful for on this Gratituesday.

Until next time,


  1. What a wonderful thing to be thankful for! I hope you both had easy fast going weeks

  2. Awww! That brought a tear to my eye! I'm just planning my first son's first birthday but I keep having visions of him going off to kindergarten.... This time is too fleeting!

  3. Thanks for sharing "a sick mommy means a healthy baby!" with me. That made me feel a little better! And I know in 7 months all of the miserable days of sickness will be completely worth it!! :)


Thank you so much for stopping by, I appreciate your words!
