Yesterday, my youngest son graduated from Kindergarten
His teacher is also retiring this year
She has taught almost every one of our seven children
Tanner has more energy in his little body
than all of my other energetic children,
all put together
I wonder if that had anything to do with her retiring so young?
She can't be much older than I am
I am kinda getting old
His best buddy, Tate
Our youngest. Our baby. Where has the time gone?
When your kids are first born,
you can never imagine how quickly this day will come
You'd think I'd be used to it by now
After all, I've already had 3 children graduate from high school
One is off to college this fall
The other two have kids of their own
To all the young mothers of children -
Treasure each day they are little
Find something special about each day, for each child
One day soon, they will be leaving "the nest"
Sometimes you are so ready for that to happen
Other times, not ready at all
On better days, you dread that day
On stressful days, you think you are ready to see them go!
But that's sad - it's a wasted day
Because, you never really will be ready
That day - it always comes too soon
