I Heart Faces..School Collage

I'm really excited about this week at I Heart Faces! Here is my collage. Today was SOOO bittersweet. My baby is a kindergartner and unlike his big brother,
when it came to kindergarten, he did not shed a tear!
I was sooo proud of him, and then I balled like a baby myself in the parking lot.
What is a Mom to do? I feel them slipping slowly out of my hands!!!

I'm thankful for photographs. I know that I will hold onto them forever.
And I am thankful for I Heart Faces for bring a collage into the mix this week!

Good Luck to all this week who enter!

My baby is a senior this year and between ordering his class ring and senior pictures and all things 'senior', I feel the slipping too...some days the tears are just a streaming down my face and I wonder where they are coming from and I remember...Josh will be leaving soon. ugh...sigh...tremble.

Thank you, Jesus, that you are so faithful to draw near!

Love you, my friend.

Isn't it amazing how different it is with a 2nd child? They're so much more confident and READY to experience what they're older sibling already 'get to' do. =0)

As hard as it was, I'm sure it would've been even harder on mom if he had cried. Although I know you're going "Aren't you even gonna miss ME????" ha ha ha

Darling photos!
