hello there, friend,

it is such a treat to watch our kids grow into themselves. i think parenting changes so much when children can communicate their needs and desires and when they begin to have a bit of self-control. i have so enjoyed watching my children's personalities develop. and even in and around these teen years, i continue to feel that way.

my kids have each tried things i did as a child and wished for them to do and they have struck out on their own as well, trying things i never would have. with the end of the school year come drama performances, band concerts and choir concerts, piano recitals and soccer tryouts. i am so moved when i see a group of kids performing together... each with their own personality, each with their own future ahead of them, all working together. you are right, watching them and cheering them on is such a joy!
