Every year I take a picture of the children on our first day and last days of school in the same spot in the house. I use these photos in our homeschool year book and it is really nice to see how much they have grown throughout the year ( although I do wish they would slow down!)
Chelsea started community college last fall. She turned 18 this year. Several weeks ago, she decided to move out and move in with friends. This was not with our blessing and has been a hard situation but she is old enough to make her own decisions. We miss her very much and try to spend time with her when we can. She finished off her second semester and is planning on attending the same college in the fall.
