Leaving home

Michael_school_years_cropped

This time last year, we were waiting on pins and needles for our referral.  We were a family of three with a son about to start his final year of high school. 

Fast forward to today and we're a family of four with a fifth on the way!  Our HS Senior is now a HS Graduate and will be leaving home in just a few weeks.

I created this collage of his school pictures just to help convince myself that he really didn't change into a man overnight.  Although I know I had good warning that he was growing up, I'm teary eyed typing this anyway.

If you have kids already, you know what I'm talking about.  If you're waiting for your first child, my advice is to be sure to treasure every single stage and don't be too impatient for them to be able to sleep alone, walk, talk, feed and bathe without help, ride a bike, stay home alone after school, etc.   Before you know it, you'll be looking into the face of your child and realize that they're an adult. 

So, one down, two to go.  Here's a picture of our next two!
