I know that the whole "fifth grade graduation" thing is a bit silly, but it does symbolize growing and moving on. They are leaving a small elementary school of less than 200 kids and going to a middle school of 600+ kids, so I know it will be an adjustment for them! Also, I am not sure if I am ready for 4 teenagers in the house!
Speaking of teenagers, this girl turned 16:
We got a Pandora charm bracelet for her for her birthday, so that she can start collecting charms and momentos from the good things we share as a family, since we realize that our time with her at home is becoming very limited!
And, the biggest reason that I haven't been posting as frequently is that I got a job at a photography studio in my town, helping with senior portraits. I am learning so much, and truly enjoying the process! I am still pinching myself, because I feel so blessed to be able to do something that I enjoy so much, and get paid for it!. I am still working out the whole balancing act, though, since I have been a stay at home mom for the past nine years, it is definitely an adjustment! I love it, though, and the people that I am blessed to work with are fantastic. They already feel like family!
