My Mundane Musings

Growing up I longed for the fast paced life of big city life and corporate America. Now I’m a stay at home mom of 4 in a small rural community! And I wouldn’t have it any other way! (At least for now).

Happy 11th birthday, Elijah!!! April 26, 2008

My oldest turns 11 today!  ELEVEN!!!  I can hardly believe it!  He’s grown up so much in the past couple year. He turned FIVE about five months after we moved into this house. He’s a great big brother – always helping to take care of his little brothers and sister. He takes his job as the oldest very seriously.  He makes me proud!

  1. As fast as they grow up and become young adults, I am sure you will enjoy the time spent with him homeschooling. My oldest is still 2 1/2 younger than him, but we wouldn’t trade it for anything. Some days it is challenging, but it looks like you are raising a fine young man. Happy birthday to him!

    I can’t believe he’s 11 and further, I can’t believe you’ve been there for 6 years! Is that really possible?? It seemed there for a while you were moving constantly. How have you been so lucky??!
    Happy birthday Elijah from your Maryland fans!
