Feeling The Pressure

OK! I am feeling the pressure to do this. It seems that everywhere I turn people are blogging. Taking time to document their lives. I love to read other's blogs--so I guess I should start one of mine own. As a mother, I find that it is hard to keep track of all the milestones in my boy's lives, my life and my marriage. Hopefully this will help. ( Oh and please know that I am really not good with grammar--I have forgotten a lot of rules, so please just ignore where the commas should go, shouldn't go etc.....)

It just seems like yesterday Winston was a baby--now he six years old. Where has time gone? Wyatt will be celebrating his birthday in 8 days--wow--he will be 4. I can't believe that time flies like that. I honestly don't think that I ever thought that I would be a grown up. Do you ever get that feeling like holy cow I am an adult? It is so weird when that feeling arises. A lot of times I get that sensation when I am dropping Winston off at school or taking my kids to the doctor. I don't know what it is about those two destinations but they send me into this sorta out of body experience that I can't explain--it just feels funny. Being a mommy is more than I could ask for--I guess that is why I feel funny at times. I guess deep down I can't believe that God has given me these two precious boys to care for. Me? Yes, Christy--YOU! I know that they are gifts that I don't dare take for granted--or at least I don't want to. Maybe that is what that funny feeling is all about--He is reminding me not to take them for granted. Oh, to be the mom He wants me to be--that would be so AWESOME!

This picture was taken last summer at the park--but it is one of my favorites! What beautiful boys!

YAY!!! I am so excited you are blogging, sweet friend. I cannot wait to see your boys soon. Can you believe Wyatt was only six months old the last time I saw him? Winston is just as cute as ever.

I totally know what you mean about feeling "Oh my gosh - this is such a grown-up thing to do. I am a real adult." It's scary and overwhelming.

Can't wait to hear and see more here - and to see you and the store and all your boys in Ada very soon!

I am also feeling the pressure Christy! I feel as if I must start a blog as well. Just to let you know, this is my FIRST ever to comment on a blogsite. Wow me. I'm actually doing it. How exhilerating, how exciting. Love you much! :) Katy
