I can hardly believe that it is already the middle of June and the end of the school year for the children. It's a bit of a bittersweet end of the year as we have decided to pull Grace from the grammar school she has attended for the last 5 years and put her in the Waldorf School. It was a very hard decision to make. There are things that I love about our community school and she only had one year left! I've had lots of people ask me why we are pulling her (Harris is staying for now) and, of course, there are many components to our decision. Basically, I feel like some of the very best parts of Grace were being left behind. My educational goal for the children is that they grow into people who can think critically and creatively and develop a love for learning. To that end this is the best decision for Grace right now.
Also, Bryce's last days for the company are coming to a close. What a journey he has had and what a blessing it was for him to have joined this company so soon after graduating law school. He will miss those he worked with dearly, but I'm so excited that we get to have him home with us for the summer! What adventures we might have!
I think that change can be so scary and overwhelming, but when I look back at some changes that we have experienced in our married life they are changes that eventually brought unexpected blessings. As we start this new chapter, I'm praying that we can keep the blessings in sight and look forward instead of back!
Hello! I'm Anna and I'm a stay at home mom of two fabulous children and wife of one fabulous guy! I blog about my family, my life and my favorite things. I love many things, but I am especially fond of children's books, parties (children's and otherwise), traditions, good food, holidays, clothes, party invitations, Martha and spending time with friends and family. I really strive to find the beautiful in our everyday. Oh, and I love pretty things!
