Happy New Year!

Suddenly the “Class of 2014” does not seem far off in our future. In a few short months Gracie will graduate high school and transition into the next stage of life. And so will I. My role as her mom will change as she turns 18, moves away from home, and begins a more independent existence.

Our family dynamic is sure to change as well. With just 2 kids at the dinner table, “Best Part, Worst Part” will be lacking one participant. Genna will have more space, both literally and figuratively, to stretch out. Ethan will have the opportunity to assume a new role – setting a good example, being a helper and protector for his little sister.

And though the college decision isn’t finalized (hurry up already!), I’m confident that Grace will follow and fulfill God’s plan for her life.

So. Much. Potential.
