last day of school

this is a momentous day. It's haeley's last day of kindergarten and tomorrow is her first day of summer break ever. If the rest of school goes this fast she'll be graduating in 3 weeks. where did the school year go? wow! she is already reading chapter books! I am so glad she goes to a school where they teach phonics (all 71 of them).

Another momentous thing happened yesterday. Haeley and I did hand stands in the basement. she did great. I on the other hand need my arm strength back. How I wish I could start lap swimming again. Maybe when Coleton goes to school - preschool - but we are still a long ways away from that since he is just barely 2. Anyway, Haeley and Coleton and I got a good laugh about it all.

Anyway, congrats little girl. I love you and I am grateful for your desire to learn.

I know what you mean about time flying by! Madelyn starts kindergarten next year. Like you mentioned in your email, it is important to stop and take in the moments because they will be gone before we know it. Thank you for reminding me of that. I thought about what you said all day yesterday and when I went to bed I was so thankful you were insightful enough to put those words of wisdom out there. Thank you again!

It's crazy to think that oneday, we wont know what to do with ourselves...okay, maybe not totally but are cutie patootie kiddos will be on to bigger things...then we'll be like our parents! :)
And, I don't remember time flying by so fast when I was in school! My Mom would say, "It's Summer already?" and I would think "Summer was a YEAR ago!" So crazy.
We have a beautiful gift...to be a Mommy...forever.
