I’m reposting a photo I took a few years ago because the start of each new school year tugs at my heartstrings and makes me weepy as I realize my children are growing up all too quickly! The photo I am sharing with you is of my daughter with 4 precious friends she’s known since they were all only a few months old. As new moms of baby girls we formed an early bond and decided to start a play group. At first we were discussing nursing, toddler food, and nap times…now we are discussing after school activities and homework! Seeing these girls growing up is such a blessing. They are each forming their own little personalities and interests and it’s so exciting to see what the Lord has in store for them. One of the sweet friends has moved away to Mississippi, but we still keep in touch and jump at the opportunity to get to visit.
This photo was taken at a little impromptu pool party celebrating the end of a school year and a bittersweet send-off for our friends that were moving away. The girls had just finished their first grade year…now they are going into third. I hope they will always be special friends and a part of each other’s lives. This photo puts a smile on my face…and in my heart! 🙂
