LOL, if we were living in our dream home, I'd be constantly yelling about horse muck being tracked into the house, bridles left draped over the backs of chairs, and vet bills.
I don't need any reminder... ;>( We are in the midst of scholarship apps and finishing well with our only child. I'm excited for her and dreading what's next for me. I deep thinking Roots and Wings - it's just part of the process. I should go buy stock in Kleenex about now. My number one job, as always, Pray, Pray, Pray! Thanks for going the walk with us, Lee. You have been a HUGE blessing.
Oh, so true! 6 here are done with home education, four are still working their way through. I don't have play-do on the floor, a diaper pail, crib sheets to wash, footed jammies, hugs around my leg while I am making dinner from a very short person, crooked "I <3 You" messages...you get the idea. (Although now I have several grandchildren, so the play-do may once again appear--we are already working on cars and Duplos and jumbo crayons on the floor.)
I don't know what I want to/should do when I grow up! Er, when the *kids* all grow up. My house will be empty, but my heart so full.
Oh, I know this I do. I'm so thankful for this time with my boys. I will miss them deeply when they grow up and move out! I almost cry just thinking about it, and we still have at least 6 years to go - LOL!
