Times...they are a-changin'...

The boys went to school by themselves this morning, and want to come home on their own today too. How neat is that?

I must admit I felt adrift standing at the back gate waving goodbye to them. I've been going to school every day with them for the last 6 years, too (not including preschool years)...didn't know I'd feel left behind as well as proud of their adventurousness.

All alone at home,

I can't imagine what it would be like to see them off to school, LOL. (we homeschool)

Yesterday was the first day of dance class for my girls, though, and they were nervous. Of course, after they were through, they had a BLAST and I had to peel them off the ceiling all evening, LOL.

Isn't it neat how they grow up and spread their fragile wings :-)

Yes their demonstration of independence wounds a mama's ego doesn't it. They show they need us in many other ways though!
