seventh grade...

i could complain about his big feet needing new size 8 sneakers and how his face is changing... and i could make a little fun of the crack in his voice

or i could mourn the little green "jackson" l.l. bean backpack being replaced with a new "teen-sized" l.l.bean backpack--no monogramming, of course

i could drive him to school and deprive him the new bus route and new bus driver and all of the new kids

i could freak out that he's got a new sense of independence that is stemming from all sorts of new junior high experiences

but i choose to be happy in the blessings that he comes home from school every day with a smile, telling me that "today was just a good day all around, mom."

thankfully, we never had to endure the "terrible twos," and with much optimism, we see his teenage years bringing us as much joy as he always has brought to our lives...  

his brother on the other hand... hee hee

today is the day...

... i decided that it was time to pick up blogging again.

i'm always amazed at bloggers who consistently, day-in and day-out blog about their stuff... whatever it may be... decorating, families, food, {um} books...

but then again, i remember that we're blessedly busy with the craziness of our lives.

and good or bad, it's our life and it's still good to be us!
