5th Grade Already - where has the time gone?

Just look at her - isn't she beautiful? I can't believe it was 5 years ago that we first walked Emma to Kindergarten. Now she's my big 5th grader!

I know, a lot of you have teens and recent graduates. You 've already told me that this is just the beginning. The heartstrings get pulled that much harder the older they get. She will probably drive me crazy when she's a teen, but for now, she's still my baby and I can't believe how she's grown.

I count my blessings everyday that I am in a job that I can be at home and be the Mom and Wife I need to be. Stampin' Up! is more than just a company that I work for, its been a great opportunity that was perfect for our family's needs. Emma tells me often that she is glad that I work from home "just in case something happens" and she has to come home. She recognizes even at 10 that if we were a traditional family of today, I'd not always be available for her.

I know how important every minute is and how precious time is to us. And I don't want to miss anything life brings our way. I plan to enjoy this ride all the way!

Thanks to all of you who support me in my business, because all of you, clients and teammates alike make it possible for me to live my dream. You are the best!
Stamped blessings!


  1. Look at your gorgeous family! Hope Emma had a GREAT first day!

  2. Wow I didn't know that Emma was in 5th grade.. Next year she will be in 6th grade like I am this year. I love her outfit by the way.
