One school year.
That can pass so quickly I can hardly believe it’s summer again.
Yet one school year….
is long enough to turn my oldest into a young man. One whose head reaches my shoulder. Who found a love of reading this year. Who learned to control those long limbs to boot the soccer ball down the field and shoot baskets with great accuracy. Who will head into the “big kid” hall at school in the fall.
One school year is enough to turn a little boy who struggles into one who thrives. Who looked so delicate and fragile at the start of the year- yet could hold his own playing on his big brother’s team by the end of the year. Who will no longer be in the youngest class in the school in the fall- first grade, here he comes.
One school year is enough to turn the baby of the family into not so much of a baby any more. Who talks our ears off and impresses us with how much he learns every day. Who confidently doesn’t want Mom’s help any more and heads off on his own adventures. Who will be in the big kid class at school next year.
It’s another school year down and time is spinning faster than ever.
