Last night as I tucked the kids into their beds, the fast march of time was evident before my eyes. “Baby” Meg just turned two and moved out of her crib and into the toddler bed. Her earnest nighttime plea of “[w]rock me” won’t last much longer.
Will looked so grown-up tucked into his new big-boy bed that I nearly wanted to cry and my little Rosebud isn’t so little anymore.
Looking out the window into the garden, the tomatoes that seemed they would never grow are now taller than me (and way too tall for their trellis).
Time won’t just won’t pause.
The little calves are growing too fast! (Anyone else’s kids think Cow Appreciation Day is the best?)
Next week Rose starts first grade— eek! She’ll be going to a classical school two days. I’ll help teach her class and homeschool her and Will the rest of the week.
Hopefully school gets in a good rhythm before we welcome our new little one into the family.
With the added responsibilities school and a baby will bring, I have been contemplating what to do with this little blog. I thought about taking a really extended break or abandoning the blog all together, but during the past few weeks of not writing, the restless urge to write has convinced me that the Feminine Adventures blog is not ready to be abandoned.
I’m hoping to at least have time to write twice a week, but if not, I haven’t forgotten you faithful readers. I’m just busy teaching Rose about a plant’s life cycle or training a precious, but mischievous, little two-year-old.
