Our prompt from Sally for the week was to look for growth and change in our lives. Not hard to find the first week of school with the kids once again grumbling about rolling out of bed in the morning to catch the bus!
But is hard to capture how much they've grown in one picture, and it is even harder to get them to agree to have their picture taken. First question "this isn't going to end up on Facebook is it?" "...ah, no thanks mom."
I realized I still had the growth chart on the wall even though we stopped tracking it a few years ago when Kate literally ran off the chart. She is now about 5' 4" but you can see the markings from the past. My favorite part is Kate scratching out one of the marks claiming it wasn't true and demanding we re-measure her! You can see the scooch upwards with the revised marking. Which satisfied her at the time. She was so worried she was going to be short, but she just took a little longer to sprout. She's all legs at this point, so the worrying is over!
