Yesterday was a big day in our world. Josh is officially swimming. No swimmies needed. Megan conquered her fear of that big bad water slide too. She had an incident there years ago and hasn't been back on it since. Yesterday she went on and LOVED IT. My kids are acheivers. The sad part in them acheiving is that it means they are growing up. But ultimately that is what a mom wants. She wants her kids to grow up and be able to do what it takes to survive. Acheivements come easy to some and not so easy to other people...Megan has to work hard for each and every acheviement. She needs to spend time practicing, honing her skills, working hard, thinking hard etc. She EARNS evey step of the way. I was just like her. I am so proud of her for all the work she does at stuff. Joshua. He is different. He is one of those kids that touches something and is good at it. He makes everything look easy. When he was a tiny little 4 year old, he put on his baseball uniform and hit doubles. He decided the training wheels on his bike were "dragging him down" so they came off early. He gets a set of roller blades for his 6th birthday. The minute he puts them on he skates like a champ. It is just the way he is. It is sickening. Unfortunately, I can see the writing on the wall. He is this boy that has all this talent. He will NOT put time into it. He will NOT spend time practicing. He will take advantage of his talent and not reach his full potential. However they do it.... my kids acheive things. I am so blessed to have them.
