Four years ago we went from the Fab Five to the Sensational Seven.
We all began a walk through life that was harder than any of us expected.
These five amazing kids are beautiful. Strong. Amazing. Creative. Stubborn. Hysterical. Compassionate. Sassy. Loving. Giving.
They are my heroes. I have said it before: some of them have climbed mountains ... in the snow ... up hill ... without feet.
They are such individuals. Becoming adults. Finding their way. We're in those beginning stages of natural separation. Allowing each of them to prepare and practice for life.
This week we specifically celebrated two of them. We are seeing these two beautiful kids need us less and less.
I realize it's not a miracle. We did our part and they did theirs. They worked for this. They did it. They keep doing it day after day.
We love these goofballs. We love them so much it hurts.
