When I was a kid, summer felt like an eternity. It was this whole thing. A thing that just seemed like summer nights would never end, and late bedtimes, and ice cream runs, and staying with your grandparents for days on end, and I could go on and on. Why was that? Why was time so long back then? Is it because we were carefree and our time is just spent on ourselves? Now we are the grown ups, we are the ones with the responsibilities and jobs, and raising the kids, and holy cow, why did we ever want to grow up in the first place? :)
I seriously cannot believe that Pierce starts 1st grade in a little over a week. Blah.
So, we are in back to school mode. I totally try to keep things exciting for Pierce, and he does seem excited and maybe even a little nervous. I hope and pray he has a great year. I'm just still wondering, where did the summer go??
We went and loaded up this weekend on all his school supplies! Yipee!! School supplies actually do excite me. :)
Silly boy!!1st grade? Now I'm wondering not just where summer went, but where did my baby go? *tear*
I was walking around Wal-Mart the other night, alone. Enjoying my kid free time for a little while, and then my thoughts went to my kids, of course! Thinking of them growing up, and then lo and behold, I'm crying in the aisles of Wal-Mart. I'm telling you what, being a mom, makes a woman plum crazy.
