growing up

So there comes a time in every parent's life when their kids get to that point when they can go on trips by themselves.  Yes.  We have reached that stage in parenthood.  It's scary - but exciting.  You pray, you worry a little, you pray some more.  You let go and trust God to take care of them.  You trust them to remember what you have taught them over the years.  It's not that they are leaving permanently.  It's just a little jaunt off to the grandparents' house.  But it's the beginning.  It's a new journey in life that we must adjust to.

What am I rambling about?  My two oldest went waaaaaaaay out to California last week to spend the 4th of July at their Grandpa's.  They are only 13 and 15.  Only!!  lol   Well, they had fun and I'm glad.  I see more trips in the future, but we will cross those bridges when we get to them.  Such is life, eh?

Until next time...

I remember our children's first trips away, also to their grandparents house. It was so hard for me but it taught them invaluable life skills.
