We are reading our final chapters in several of our favorite novels these days. Hailey is "graduating" from the 8th grade and moving on to high school (I can't possibly be that old and neither can she), Maddy is "graduating" from the 5th grade and moving on to middle school (I really don't feel ready for that either), and Finn just finished a fantastic year of 1st grade where he was able to play the lead role in his first grade play (Max in Where the Wild Things Are).
As we read the final words, I am forced to remember that everything is a cycle. And I guess we wouldn't properly appreciate the beginnings without a few sad endings.
photos on the side....Hailey's 8th grade Social, Maddy learning new tricks...when did she turn into a skate chick that wears pink????, and Finn as Max. Good times this year.....good times. Grow sweet babies, grow.
