last night we celebrated the end of summer with a party. it was a lot of fun….now the morning after cleanup is almost complete and i realize that in less than 48 hours Nick will have began his 7th grade year. it’s hard to believe…that he is getting so old. this summer he turned the big “1-3”. it seems like only yesterday he was a happy lil’ guy barely big enough to stand on his own. now he not only stands alone, but stands taller than i do….eeks…7th grade. where does time go? do we really appreciate our lives as they are at this very moment? or are we so busy rushing into tomorrow that we don’t stop to realize what we have today, and how quickly it could be gone.
