Back to school

Today all my precious babies for on the school bus headed to school. So crazy that I now have not one but two middle schoolers. It's crazy. I'm so proud of each of them. It'll be interesting to hear each of their stories when they return home this afternoon. I'll miss them while at school but I know it's what is best for them. I do love these precious beings.
It's off to 7th grade, 6th grade, 4th grade and 1st grade for these youngsters. And continued bed rest for this pregnant Momma.

She's 12, I can't believe she's 12

Today 12 years ago, Zeus and I spent the majority of our day in a hospital room patiently waiting for Zero to make her arrival. She really was cozy in there and she had to literally be forced out with medication and a pushy Momma. At about 5pm she made her arrival. This special little girl made Zeus and I parents for the first time. She also made her daddy cry for the first time too. Our baby was perfect.

As we look at her today she still amazes me at how intelligent, clever, tough, determined, well-behaved, honest and caring she has become. Our baby is growing up. It's scary. It's sad. Neither one of us want her to grow up. We want to cuddle and snuggle her forever and we both know that is fading fast right before our eyes.

Zero, Momma and Daddy love you to the moon and back sweet girl. We are so proud of you. Remember to be who you are and trust God that he'll protect you. With all these tears we say thank you for your beautiful spirit. We look forward to many more memories we'll have with you.

With all our love
Momma & Daddy
