Today, thanks to Tracy, we watched a monarch caterpillar go from this:
They have milkweed plants growing in a garden at Pinewood Castle and were good enough to share some caterpillars with us. Hooray for the changes that took place before our eyes!
Also today, thanks to…hormones, I guess, I watched my firstborn son go from this:
His dad took this picture on their way to Joe’s first dance. Boo for the changes that are taking place before my eyes! (Not really.) (Okay, maybe.)
Actually, I am thrilled that he’s going to this particular dance. A couple of teenagers from our homeschool co-op offered swing dancing lessons on Monday and Wednesday; tonight the teens will see how much they remember!
I am going to publish this post and go watch the last hour.
I am, as David Bowie put it, going to go and face the strain.
Change is good! Growth is good! I am a brave and courageous mother!
