Loving This Weather

After SEVERAL days of triple digit temperatures I am LOVING this cooler weather. This morning we went outside and I let the older three ride their bikes in the street by themselves. Don't panic I was in the driveway watching their every move. They thought they were so big. Usually Chris and I are right there with them.

After a little while I was praising them for obeying the "laws" and watching out for cars and stopping, etc. Christopher rode up to me and with all the excitement he had he said, "Mom, I feel so old. I feel like I am 8." He must think I am ancient if 8 is old to him. It is kind of funny too because on Thursday he is going to be 7, so I guess 8 is old to him.

As I was watching them I kind a little teary eyed thinking about how they are growing up but then excited at the same time because they are becoming more fun the more things they can do. I don't even know if that makes sense.

Anyway, life was good for my 3 kiddos this morning.

And then you blink, and they are going into 7th grade, playing football and taking pre-algegra.
I'm trying SO hard not to blink!
