Three days later my not-so-little boy turned 14! Um, how can it be that I've been a momma for FOURTEEN years now! His broad shoulders are wider than mine and when he pulls himself to his full height, I am no longer taller than all my children. So many other signs are popping up as I see this boy grow into a young man. I am really proud of who he has become and who he is going to be. I look forward to seeing what this next year holds for him.
Sarah is loving the warm weather. It has been a great incentive to get her to wear clothes during the day. We also took this opportunity to transition from her beloved winter boots to new running shoes. Sandals will be a whole new challenge but for now, I'll be happy that she's wearing runners. She tends to gravitate towards one particular piece of footwear and it becomes the favorite.
Today I'm going to work on finishing up the laundry and cleaning up the house. We're taking a quick one nighter trip to Calgary to visit my sister and her family. I'm looking forward to Doug doing the driving this time so I can just sit back and relax! It'll be nice to take some time away from home and (for me) hang out with Alicia again! Maybe we'll get spoiled a bit on Sunday? :)
