As our kids are getting older, it becomes more difficult to squeeze in precious time with them. Yesterday, I was blessed with the opportunity to have breakfast with my son at Panera Bread. The double blessing was that our breakfast was free because of my Panera Rewards.
It was nice to catch up with each other on the different projects that we both have going on, along with spending quality time with each other without distractions. When I think back on yesterday, it also makes me think back to all the crazy, fun days of homeschooling my kids: years of starting our school day in pajamas, years of starting our school day in uniforms (which they hated by the way), and years of me packing three homeschool museum visits in one day. Way overkill!
Although I miss these memories, I know that God has several more precious ones that will come along as I watch my kids take off and fly their wings.
Until next time,
