Back to school

I remember the day when we went to school to seek admission for my older one. The younger one was just a couple of months old, and I couldn't image ever letting him go. Today, that baby of mine started primary school. It was bitter-sweet dressing both the kids in their 'big boy' school uniforms and dropping them off at school.
Before I know it they are going to be in secondary school, then high school, then college. I look forward to seeing the kind of men they become. But sometimes I also wish I could hold onto the past.

my two wee boys are 39 and 41. Imagine that in your mind. And yet...a certain look, a particular chuckle and we are all back there. yes.

They do grow up so incredibly quickly! It's hard to imagine.

They are so handsome! Hope school went well!

Natasha - Time goes so quickly, doesn't it? That's why I think it's so important for us to savour our time with our children. Soon enough they start their own lives...

I can still see ponytails and hesitant smiles even though they are 42 and 37.
Treasure each moment.

I cried when my son went to his first day of Kindergarten. This fall he starts 2nd grade... and my daughter goes off to college in 4 years. I can't believe it!
