A Month of "Lasts"

December is turning out to be a big month of "lasts" for us. There's alot happening this month that is changing our family dynamic.

This is the "last" month that Lauren will be 5
This is the "last" month that Lauren will be homeschooled
This is the "last" Christmas we'll have with our dog Molly as her kidney's have started to fail now.
This is my "last" year of being a stay at home mom as I am trying to get a job now

Seems like alot of "last" things happening with us but we are excited about all of the "Firsts" also. I think 2011 will be an exciting year with us with Lauren turning 6, starting private school in January and life moving forward. It's hard to think about all of the "lasts" but we are moving ahead and looking forward to what the future and the month of January brings.

Moving forward is always hard but also good, I am so excited for Lauren to start the new school since she is happy about it. I ams sad about Molly because she is my granddog and I love her too, but she has had a wonderful life because of the love ya'll have given her. 2011 is going to be a wonderful year for all of us I pray!(my verification word was belief) maybe it is a sign:).

Oooh, those are some BIG lasts! But it's 'fun' to move forward... most of the time.

I hope Lauren likes school and I hope it works out for everyone!

I'm thinking I'll probably go back to work next fall... and I'm already freaking out about that!

I'm excited to hear that Lauren must have overcome her anxiety enough to go to school with other children. Hooray!

I'm very sorry about Molly. (I had a Westie named Molly.) We are in the exact same situation with our dog, Bailey. It's hard for her to walk around and she is becoming incontinent. I'm pretty sure it will be her last Christmas and it just breaks my heart. Hugs!
