A cookie kind of day

It's kind of a sad and lonely day around here today. Our good friend Chelsea called last night saying that she was going to Aunt Hannah's house, and wanted to know if Kathryn would like to tag along. Our little girl? On a trip all by herself?? She was such a big girl packing up her things and putting them in her backpack. Of course, she was ready 3 hours early, but still carried her backpack around with her all morning. When Chelsea got to the house, she went around giving her hugs, and all I could think was, "she'll be a teenager before I can blink". I love my little girls so much, and it's so hard to see them growing up so fast... and remember to let go a little as they do.


Sad doesn't begin to describe what Livie was feeling as Kate pulled away. She was downright depressed. Thankfully, this Mama had something up her sleeve! I had whipped up a batch of sugar cookies and had them chilling in the fridge this morning, ready to be cut into shapes and decorated when we walked back in from waving goodbye.

Success!

I don't think your girls could get any cutier! What a precious picture of them saying goodbye!
Your such a good Mom...what a perfect idea. Can you think of anything I could do with Logan when Blair leaves without him? I know what you mean by depressed.
Hope you all are having a fun summer...it sure is HOT in KY.

You're such a smart mama! Having grown up in a house with sisters who were so close to my age, I'm sure Kate will miss Olivia and Maggie but I guarantee she's loving the time to be out and about by herself like a big girl :)
