Yesterday I found Morgan crying in my bed. Why? Because she was trying to finish reading The Outsiders, and the words on the page so moved and touched her, she couldn't stop crying to read the words to finish the story. Oh how I love that words have penetrated her heart in this beautiful way.
Today was my last lunch with Sarah at her school. She has 1 and a half days of school left, and she will venture onto Middle School. The problem with having my girls so close together is how each stage is full, then so quickly over. The days of elementary school are over for us. And yes, my eyes fill with tears as I type this words. They've been good years. Not how I exactly pictured them, but good none the less. And so very beautiful.
Last night Sarah mowed the entire front lawn by herself. I'm amazed at how capable she is of these seemingly 'grownup' tasks.
Morgan's introverted self has struggled with middle school friendships this year (oh, how I can relate!). But she has excelled in academics. The end of the year has brought much joy as we celebrate her being accepted in NJHS, and her teachers recommending her for algebra and advanced science next year. She works so hard, and it's so nice to see others recognize her efforts.

We have 5 summers left with Morgan and 7 with Sarah. You better believe we will fill them with as much happiness and memories as we can! Can't wait for our 3500 mile road trip this summer!! (DC, Philly, Boston, Maine, and Hershey!)
