One of the things you do as your children get older is get rid of those things that they are too big to play with. Connor received a swing/slide castle for his first birthday, and it's seen a lot of play in our backyard. Tonight, as I watched it drive off to a new home with three little "babies", my eyes were filled with tears of happy memories of time spent in the backyard.
While I know there are a multitude of more memories to be made, I have a hard time looking forward tonight. I'm thankful for the wonderful times we were blessed to have, and I pray that there will be many more years of such sweet thoughts.
