I was feeling very emotional about my youngest daughter graduating from kindergarten last Friday. It made me acutely aware of how quickly time passes, and I've been missing the days when my girls were really little. My 8-year-old daughter is way past the little girl phase and she acts more like a teenager most days (but she's adorable, nonetheless). Luckily my youngest is still very much a little girl -- she still loves dolls, pink and princess stuff (actually, I don't think she really likes princess stuff anymore, but she says she does just to humor me). She's such a sweetheart . . . when I commented on how my "little girls were growing up," she responded, "Mommy, I'm ONLY 6, not 20!!" True! Most importantly, this transition time reminded me of how quickly time passes and how important it is to enjoy each and every day with my family and to be grateful for all the good stuff in life. This is something I'm going to try and be more consciously aware of on a daily basis.
On a scrapbook related note, I realized that I have a quite a few layouts that I haven't yet posted here, so I'll slowly be playing catch-up. Here's a sketch I created for a challenge at the A Million Memories online crop last month:
And here's the layout I made based on my sketch. I used Cosmo Cricket papers and chipboard:
Have a great week!
