For some reason yesterday I was under the impression that we were going to go an evening with out rain this week. Still I packed a rain coat and my rain cover for my camera. Sure enough we get down to our first spot and it starts to sprinkle. We played around for a few minutes, grabbing as many shots as we could.
The skies opened up and then came the thunder and lightening. So, we ducked for cover. We goofed around and waited for the lightening to let up. Eventually the rain let up as well. The kids picked and poked at each other. At times, it was challenging to get my kids to focus.
I am trying to get as many photos of my kids as I can. My daughter is graduating in 2018, and my son will be going to high school next fall. Their innocent ignorance of the world is fading. My daughter is thinking more and more of her future. It's so hard to believe she'll be a legal adult in seven months. My son's voice is getting deeper and deeper and he's going to be taller than me soon. I'm excited, nervous, happy and sad all at the same time. Is this whirlwind of emotion normal at this stage of parenthood?
