Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the.....dandelions!

There is no doubt about it...we are busy!
Life will not slow down for us as moms and most definitely not for our larger-than-normal homeschooling family.  If we wait for it to slow down, we will miss out on some of the most precious moments God will ever give us!

 A few cliches come to mind....
Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the roses.
Life is a dance.
Life is too short.
They grow up too quickly.

They don't seem so cliche anymore.
I am going to purpose NOT to plan so much but to milk each spontaneous moment for all it is worth.  Photo shoots don't have to be planned!!  Sophie made a dandelion crown and I banked on the precious moment.  
I thank God for every...single...moment and I do not want to take a single one for granted.
I can't believe I have teenagers in my home!!
Don't Blink 
as one of my sweet friend's has fitfully named her blog.
Take the time...
Make the time...
to stop and smell the roses...
or dandelions in this case!
