Not for my children. They love school and are so happy to see their friends again.
I am the one with the blues. I miss them already.
We had a really great time over the holidays.
The house is quiet today.
The lego table is waiting for a little girl to get home. (Please don't think we spoil her too much. Some of these sets were for Christmas and birthdays, but most of them she bought after saving her allowance money.)
The scrabble game is packed away. My son won the last round.
Another favorite game is back in the box.
And our coat rack looks sad with only one jacket.
Sometimes it is so hard to watch our children grow up. Birthdays and other milestones can be bittersweet. But we are blessed to be able to watch our children grow. The last few weeks, my heart has been with those moms and dads in Connecticut who will not get to send their children back to school. I am keeping them in my prayers. I hope they feel God's arms wrapped around them.
Much love, Elizabeth
