Walking into a New Chapter

Well these are it...These are the tennis shoes that will be taking my babies to middle school in 6 days. The tennis shoes that they had to have. The tennis shoes that I think are not so cute but felt like i needed to tell them I LOVE THEM if you do. The shoes that will be walking my daughters into a new chapter, a new beginning, a new story. Wow I can remember my first day of middle school. New Friends...Locker Combinations...P.E. lockers....dances...lots of new teachers...and a sense that I was growing up and having more freedom. I'm frightened for them. I remember kids being mean in middle school and now a days they seem to be worse. I hope that Kevin and I have raised our kids to show respect and be friends with everyone, not to gossip and not to spread rumors. To treat others as you would want to be treated. I hope they know I am here for them when they have had a bad day, or when they need someone to laugh with or need someone to hold them as they cry. I can't wait to celebrate their victories and help them learn from their failures. My little babies no more? Yes of course I can call them my babies forever!!! I love you Liv & Lex
