In a Blink of an Eye

Summer is in full swing. I would love to report that with the end of school came a slowing in our schedule. That is what I would like to report. However, the truth is we seem to be as busy as ever. I'm guessing that is the consequence of all these growing children I find myself surrounded by.


S. received a registration packet from the Jr. High she will be attending in the fall. She spent hours pouring over all the information she is very excited about everything. Well everything but the Jr. High boosters she needed. Lucky for us we were able to get her into the Dr.'s office quickly and get the dreaded shots over with. Though while at the Dr.'s office the Dr. had to assure her that to his knowledge no one had ever died from Jr. High boosters. She quickly picked up on the words, "To his knowledge." I think he found her anxiety a little amusing.

Sadly I too found her anxiety amusing.

It is amazing what we choose to stress, over think, and become a basket case over.

I have to admit is is a little strange to be the parent of this growing young women. I keep looking for my little curly hair girl and keep finding this nearly grown women. I don't question that I am old enough to be her mother I just question how 12 years passed so quickly.

I cannot beleive how much she looks like you! Surprising at how quickly the time passes. This just tells me to cherish all the moments because everyday from the time they are born they are moving away from us. She is a beautiful young woman.
