Reminiscing

So with my babies in kindergarten now, I am feeling a real sense of "empty nest" syndrome. Never mind that I am at work the entire time they are in school. And their smiling faces are waiting at the door for me when I get home. Never mind that, except for occasional homework assignment, there has been no real change in my routine since the children started school. It's the point of the matter. Intellectually, I know a page has been turned. A page that can never be turned back. My babies are no longer babies. They are children now. And it makes me sad.

As a result, I have found myself perusing old pictures of the kids lately. Pictures of crazier, louder, wilder, busier times. Lovely times. Here are a few of my favorites:
