over 30

well, i am officially in the "over 30" group now!

still hard to believe. 31 is still VERY young. and to have three children as spaced out as mine are is sometimes hard for people to grasp, i guess.

took Addison to church for the first time on sunday. had to make a stop in the nursing room and these two other sweet women were in there nursing their 10 month old babies. they were oohing and aahing over little Addison and remembering back to when their babies were so small. then, the question finally came..."is this your first?" my response, "no, actually it's my third." their response, "OH!!!!, how old are your other children???" i think it's so shocking to people that i actually have a child entering the 1st grade in just about a month! :)

i see it as a blessing. i'm so blessed with these precious children and i wouldn't have it any other way. there is certainly NOTHING i would've rather been doing these past six years of my life!

so, here's to 31. with our baby girl sortof starting it off, it's looking like it's going to be a GREAT year! :)

I have generally the same timeline/ages of kids, and I agree that it's a great blessing to be young and able to keep up with three energetic little ones! Funny - lots of ladies in the nursing room also asked me if EB was my first. :)

First Grade - man, that happened fast. Haven't they been the most joyful 6 years of your life? Congratulations on another successful year - here's to the beginning of another one!

no worries, I'm in that 'age group' too! It's OK, 30 is the new 20, RIGHT? You have so much to be thankful for - what a beautiful family! Miss you guys!

Some of us would feel blessed to see 31 on our birthday and feel ever so young there! Ha! I myself find it rather amusing when people ask me the age of my children and I now have to say my oldest is 31 and my youngest is 27!! I had fond memories of when YOU started school as I was reading this blog...It seems like yesterday! But reality says it's not when I think of the age of you girls and that Addison makes grandchild #8! This is a busy time in your life but a GOOD ONE!
Love, Your Mother
