People wait all week for Friday, all year for summer, all life for happiness

I feel like time is on fast forward.  It does not seem possible that summer is winding down.  School has started, the pool is closed and soon we will be bundling up in sweatshirts and watching the leaves change colors.

I love watching my little guy grow.  Everyday is a new adventure.  Witnessing life through the eyes of a child is absolutely amazing.  And the amount that HJ learns and processes never ceases to amaze me.  Every day, I witness a little more of my baby slipping through my fingers while this amazing young boy molds in front of me.

A year ago, he was afraid to get his head wet at the pool.  This year, he is diving off the board.  Last year, he was attending school for the first time.  This year, he walks to school with his buddies.

Sometimes, I want to push pause and savor each moment.  Yet, at the same time, I can’t wait to see what is coming next.

One Thought on “Goodbye Summer

  1. I know exactly how you feel! My daughter started 5th grade this year, and I honestly can’t believe it. I miss the days when afternoon naps at pre-school were the thing, but I also relish in the new beginnings she will experience this year! XOXO-Kasey
