These boys are moving up to the youth group at church. I can't believe it! And because of this we are adjusting to a few changes around here. 

Change #1.  All three boys are gone a lot. It's strange after all these years to just have one child at home most of the time. I think Anna is loving it right now, but I don't know how long that feeling will last. She, like her mom, doesn't like to be left out of fun things.

Change #2.  It's expensive! It's one thing sending one child to a youth event once a week. We need a whole other wallet to send three kids. Whew! Float trips, ball games, pizza, it adds up. Summer needs toned quickly!

Change #3.  Their activities interfere with my bedtime. When we just had Samuel, he could ask a friend to bring him home. But now that there are three, it seems too much to ask of someone. So I stay up, and dressed. Well sometimes Stephen does, most of the time Stephen does. 

Change #4 is coming in just a few months, Samuel will be 16. Oh, I don't know if I'm ready for that!
