The Quiet

Well, the house is quiet this morning. Four of our babies walked out the door and went to school. I'd like to blame the sadness on the post partum baby stuff, but deep down inside I know it'd be there even if I didn't have an 11 day old baby.

It's kind of funny when I think about it. The ONLY thing in life that I've ever known without question, for as long as I can remember, is that I wanted to have kids. Never had plans for a career, traveling, houses, or cars...just babies. Just my very own family.

I know that them walking out of the door today for this big adventure will help to prepare them for the bigger adventures that lay ahead. I know that we are doing the right thing for our family by sending them to a school that we all love.

I am so thankful for my Jeff. For giving me the only thing I've ever REALLY wanted. For staying home today to make sure I make it through the quiet. For loving and wanting this family as much as me.

Wow, that was such a sweet and touching post. Everyone looks so content and super cute/handsome in their new school clothes. It's wonderful to see children who are not afraid to smile and who know they are loved.
