New Beginnings

This month promises to be a very exciting one.

My daughter has completed her first week of her junior year in college and likes all her classes.

My older son begins college in a couple of weeks, where he will try out for the baseball team. His goal is to combine the intense five-year architecture program with baseball, so it will be quite a challenge. In some ways though, he does his best work when he is pressed for time - not unlike his mother.

My youngest is at a high school orientation for freshmen today, led by a "link crew" of experienced seniors who have volunteered their time to help the new kids adjust to life in H.S. They will keep in touch with the kids throughout their freshman year, helping them make the adjustment to their new school.

My husband is switching to a new group at work and will have new responsibilities there.

I will be writing full time come next week, and I can't wait. So here's to new challenges and new beginnings!

What a beautiful family. There are lots of changes for everyone - change is good.

It is now also your turn to have a little fun. Go for it friend.

Wow, I can see I have a lot of catching up to do. So many new things.

Congratulations on your new beginnings. I am thinking nothing than good thoughts for you.
As Judy said, change is ultimately for the best - so your heart is in the right place.

Wishing you all much luck and success for your endeavors.
