Look at my children- They are growing like weeds and a lawnmower will not stop them! We experienced a couple of "firsts" in the life of growing teenagers today. Forrest received his first paycheck from his first job outside of the home. He is working with a good friend who owns a construction business and he worked two days last week and earned $104.00. I had to document the hundred dollar bill, because you know it will not last long! He's not afraid to get down and dirty and sweaty. He told his boss yesterday while they were building a back deck/overhang, "This is fun!" We are so proud of our son! Sadie's is a little bit more girly-girl than a paycheck. Today marked the first day she shaved her legs! I told her I was in the 6th grade when I did and I guess she wanted to continue the tradition! Last night, George and I were sitting on the couch with our legs on top of each others and Sadie came and sat down beside me and put her hand on what she thought was my leg and quickly pulled back and said, "You need to shave your legs!". I busted out laughing because it was George's leg she had her hand on! You know I'm a true scrapbooker if I'm documenting my daughter's first shave! In three weeks, Forrest will begin his high school years (and early morning seminary) and Sadie will begin her middle school years. My babies are not little babies anymore. Where did the time go? I bet my parents are saying the same thing. They're quickly on their journey to become grown-ups, but they'll always be my babies!
I'm a brand new stay-at-home mom after almost nine years of teaching elementary physical education. I am married to a fantastic husband of fifteen years who loves me for who I am and is very supportive in all that I do, especially scrapbooking! We have a an almost 16 year old son who loves sports and is your typcial teenager in every fashion, shape and form. Our 13 year old daughter is the musician in the family and cannot wait to be a teenager! Our family wouldn't be complete without our weiner dog and standard poodle, Benny & Carhartt. I am very blessed to have such a wonderful family and am extremely happy where I am in my life.
