This kid! Walking on my walls! Either that or learning how to use photoshop. Either way, Wes is always busy and up to something. He’ll be a sophomore at college in the fall…not sure how I’m old enough for that!! But he loves college and looking forward to going back.
Then there’s this one who saved up to buy another car, so he can sell previous car, and hopefully then just have one car! 🤣Wil is getting ready to start his senior year of high school which is very surreal. I’m bracing myself for it because I remember Wes’ senior year was a blur.
Then there’s Skye, my sidekick and shopping buddy, my partner in crime, and mini me. She’s going off to high school in the fall! It’s going to be quiet around here! It will be the first year ever we haven’t homeschooled someone in 14 years!!!
What is such an encouragement and blessing to me, is that I always thought when this day came I would be so sad…but I’m really excited for them and their next steps. God works things out and has a good plan for everyone. Our education plan had many twists and turns, but ultimately whether you see your kid off to school at 5 or 14, it’s a good thing and it is neat to see how things have unfolded.
I’m thankful that God has given me a sense of excitement and anticipation to keep going on in the art field, teach classes, but also still support Dave and the kids however I can.
I have so many good examples around to show how you can pour into your family even as they grow and move out. I want to be that support and even now I can see how it can unfold. A lot of times I am in my same spot in the living room. I can do felting, computer work, study the Bible, make phone calls. Lots of stuff can be done in my little spot on the couch in my living room …the kids know they can find me, and it’s a good feeling to be around when they need me.
God is good and His plan is right. His plan for the nuclear family cannot he rivaled….now I just need to keep that in mind if school gets cancelled in the fall and everyone is still home!!! 😉
