Because before you can even take a breath they seem to be closer to grown up than little...well, two of them at least. Miss Elizabeth Jane did not go to school today but needed to have a backpack and a lunch (packed by her own two independent little hands of course.) She spent the morning shooting baskets with mommy ay the YMCA and taking her own sweet time picking out books at the library. Mommy knows better than to hurry these days. There will be no guilt over reading and an afternoon away together. Time is a treasure.

(Abby Sue~ 10 years old and making her own breakfast)
(Ben~ 8 years old and in my opinion the best age in a boys life)
