Family changes



Yesterday was Savanna and Jordan's school registration. I had to face reality -- Savanna is not in elementary school anymore. Tonight is also her first night in youth group. I just haven't been at a place mentally to face the change without a pile of tears. But reality is, I also haven't been able to walk to the mailbox or brush my teeth the past few weeks without crying. (lol)

Savanna's fine with all the changes as usual. She loves growing up! She's such a confident child and flows well with change. She's excited about everything from her new school t-shirt to what she's going to pack for her lunch the first day. And I'm happy to see her so happy. We registered Jordan for his senior year. He's looking forward to finishing up. There's so much to take care of ...just made the appt. for his senior portraits... and I've sort of been in a fog trying to remember everything to do. I'm glad I had a year's break between Dustin's graduation and his. (They are just 17 months apart in age.) Dustin has been registered for his college classes this semester for a while and he just got another job (in addition to his Publix job) at the new Cobb Theater that's opening up. He's working a lot of hours, and keeping a lot going and I'm so proud of him.

Larry has been working and when he's not he's watching the Olympics.

I'm reading a lot, writing a lot and talking to God whether He talks back right away or not.

Love to all,

Hope you noticed in this post what all you have going on! One going to middle school (I so relate, so is ours) one being a senior and one off to college. You have every right to be tired and emotionally spent. That is alot of change. You are such an inspiration and I just want you to know it. I think you rock!
