Life can feel so full, so constantly moving, that it’s hard sometimes to recognize the shifts in our family. They can be subtle, and sometimes it takes a big change to truly recognize how far you’ve come, how much your children have grow, how different your current stage of motherhood is.
Making a big move into a new home has me reflecting on all of the life that we’ve lived in our current home. I get emotional when I think of how little our kiddos were when I look back at photos of when we first moved into this house. Just as I take a look back seeing how much they have grown and changed… realizing this new season of motherhood I have stepped into without even completely seeing it. Time creeps up like that and now I see all those lasts that quietly came and went.
There is so much to be grateful for, holidays cozied up together, countless hours out back by the pool, watching so many dreams come to reality.
I can feel the excitement from our kiddos for this next chapter. I know that moving will be an adjustment for them, and I am sure there will be mixed feelings when it comes time to leave this house. Most of all though, I see them anticipating this next chapter. It makes my heart so happy to know that wherever our family goes, as long as we are together, we are home.
We have so much to look forward to in our new home, especially with summer right around the corner! It’s our favorite time of year, and I truly cannot wait to have more time together, as we settle into our new normal!
