Things really move fast with kids. And especially with 5 of them, there really are blink and you miss it moments. We can get so engrossed in daily life – traffic, work, service, meetings – that the simple everyday things of the kids growing up are easy to gloss over.
But now we have 5 kids in school. Our youngest just started this year! So empty nest during weekdays and school hours. On the times I am home during those hours, it seems too quiet.
Thankful for good schools that teach them well. A wonderful extended family that defends and fights for them. And a community that reinforces what it means to be Catholic.
Oh these kids. Why are they growing up so fast?
