It Was Just Yesterday...

Posted on 19 May 2010

It was just yesterday that I hurriedly left the classroom and rushed to my car so no one would see me crying.

. I had taken Jack to his first day of kindergarten and gotten him all seated and settled with his "big boy" school supplies stowed away.  I think I ran over about five mothers as I ducked my head and darted from the schoolroom before the floodgates opened. I sat alone in my car and cried. I told myself, he would be graduating before I knew it...
...and sure enough, before I knew it...
. .
I'm crying again.

    This made me tear up…and my kids are 2 and 6 months. Time does fly…my girl is already asking when she can go to school. Our babies will always be our babies even when we can’t hold them in our laps anymore…

    Just reading this made me get choked up! I know the feeling a little just picturing Kathryn and Walker going into High School this fall.
    Jack is so handsome, smart and generous. Where ever he goes he will be a success….because of you and your wonderful family!! P.S. What a great Picture!
