To say it was a long night would be an understatement.
However I have realized that my kids are growing up FAST!
When my boys moved out this past year, one last July and one this past December I realized just how fast time really does fly. How is that only yesterday they were running up to me with hand fulls of beautiful dandelion bouquets and now they are moved out and living on their own.
The one really good thing that their growing up has done for me has made me realize that I need to focus on the little things more. I don't mean dwell on them but realize that it is the little things that I miss the most.
Such as spending hour after hour after hour at what ever sporting event they were playing in. Travelling here to there and making memories along the way. Enjoy the sound of laughter as we are all gathered around a meal or listening to them tease one another or myself as we just simply spend time together.
So now I take pictures. Small snapshots of special memories that they and myself will love for years to come. I have learned not to just take posed photographs. Everything doesn't have to be perfect, in fact I usually get the best faces when they are not. :)
Tonight I brought along my own camera to take some pics. I must admit I felt a bit weird bringing my camera to a photography studio but I figured that after all we would be outside in the lobby so I could capture some images that she is going to want to remember forever, and honestly so am I.
So first we had our goofy pictures.
Some of them I am saving for a blog post in the future. It is an idea that I got from my bloggy friend Lynette.
Have a great weekend everyone!!
By the way have I mentioned lately how happy I am to be back? :)
