What do you know...two posts, two days in a row.
And there are pictures to boot!
I don't know ladies. I think I'm starting to spoil you! :) I mean, I don't want you to get used to this or anything.
Especially after today's post. Its school picture time and I have to say this year's crop of school photos are especially cute. I don't know why, but school photo time is my favorite time of the year. When Shad called me to tell me the kids had brought home their pictures today I asked him to bring them with him when he came to pick me up.
He laughed and told me I was weird.
I told him to bring them anyway.
I wasn't disappointed. My kids are adorable...and I have the proof! :)
Is it just me or are these kids growing up way too fast?!
It's amazing to me just how quickly they change, right before your eyes.
Alek is in 6th grade this year, which officially has me in a state of panic. That means next year is junior high. AUGH! Junior. High.
That's big stuff...and I'm not ready. The girls are starting to circle...the friends are starting to take more of his time and the attitude is starting to change...which is going to have to change, because I, for one, am not going to put up with it.
He'll figure it out sooner or later.
Anya all of a sudden isn't a little girl anymore. She's growing up, seemingly overnight. And let me tell you...that sweet spirit that seems to just ooze out of her picture is 100 percent of her personality. In fact, it surprises us when we catch her doing anything wrong.
Take tonight for instance. I caught her in a lie. Not a big one...and maybe not even one that was premeditated. I doubt she really thought through what she said, because she quickly changed her story as soon asked for a second time about it.
But a lie it was.
Totally caught me off guard.
Nick. Oh Nick! What a kid. I tell you, he is an absolute joy! That little grin on his face is also 100 percent Nick. He is such a sweet kid...and he, too, is growing up way too quickly.
And then there's Maddie. Sweet, sweet Maddie. Can't you believe the changes in our little girl?! She has is just growing and changing so much...almost daily, really. Kindergarten has been SO good for her.
Enjoy the pics. I'm working on another picture-filled post for you tomorrow.
See? I told you I was spoiling you! :)
