the one where they are grown-ups

I started this blog in 2008. Bryce and Jarron were 7 years old then. It seems like just yesterday that I was writing about their adventures at East but here we are. They are adults now. Freshmen in college. Bryce is at Xavier University.

And Jarron is at the University of Cincinnati.

And now we begin a whole new adventure. As parents of adults. There's not very many parenting blogs for moms in this stage of life. The point where you're sharing stories of those rare moments of time you get when your whole family is in one place at one time. You see, that's the thing I was most unprepared for-how much I'd miss the people living in my house. They are just so busy with school, activities, work...that I try to soak up the rare moments I have with my four lakes boys all in one spot.

On the bright side, I successfully parented half of my children to adult-hood, so I'll take that win.

The One with Moose's Field Trip

This week I got the privilege of being a chaperone for Moose's second grade class field trip to the Sharon Woods Heritage Village.
Moose has been pretty excited about this for weeks. He loves going to new places and he loves it when his family visits his school.
I just had a group of three kiddos to keep an eye on for the day, Moose, his buddie Gabe and another little guy named Landen. The day went by really fast-we had amazing weather-and with the exception of behavioral issue with one of the children at lunch, it was an awesome day.

Moose has been to the Sharon Woods park a bunch of times but he's never been to the historic village area. I was really proud of how well behaved he was and how much enjoyed learning about the different village centers.
So glad I was able to spend this time with him!
