The First and The Last

This year has been quite a year of growth for my kiddos. And nothing drives that point home more than seeing the physical evidence. 

The kiddos on the first and last day of this school year.

It has been a wonderful year, with amazing teachers, first time experiences, great memories, sports and plays and musicals, hard work yielding good grades, and yes, much growth.  

It puts a pretty big lump in my throat to see my kids growing so quickly but I sure am proud of the people they are becoming.  And I am so grateful I get this summer to spend as much time with them as possible. Let's hope the time doesn't fly quite so quickly.

Such a great photo. It is amazing how much they've grown. Enjoy your summer. Ours is flying by way too quickly already.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
