Not gonna happen

Time goes by too fast when your kids are growing up, doesn't it?

A few weeks ago we were hanging out and I looked both my boys in the eye and said, "Ya'll need to just stop it."

"Stop what?" "What did we do?" they asked.

"Stop growing up! I mean it, ya'll just need to stop it right now." I replied.

Cade, my oldest, rolled his eyes and said, "Mommy....that's just not gonna happen."

Today was the last day of first grade for Cade. For some reason, this day was harder than the first day. Not sure why...I guess I realize that there just isn't any way to slow things down.

Here he is on the first day of first day of 1st Grade:


And here he is today, the last day of 1st Grade...ever!


Here's my other little munchkin when he graduated from Pre-K 2 last week.
He will be graduating from Pre-K 1 next year! How many dang graduations do kids have nowadays anyway??? But I digress.... Isn't he a cutie? :o)

It's officially summertime in these parts!

Hello Kim.
You have recently inspired me and I thought you'd like to know that I made a comment about you in my blog.
And yes, I so agree with you, what is UP with all the growing up these kids tend to do?!
Take care!

Yes, it's true they do grow. I have four kids of my own between the ages of 19 and 4. I love every season they're in - and I have to make sure to sloooowww way down so I don't miss a thing!

Blessings,
Marie

ROFL... how many graduations? THAT cracked me up! Drew's class was having a graduation last year and since he's goign to be BACK in that school NEXT year again for their 5 year old class (since my Elem doesn't have full day kindergarten -- one of the ..what..two or three here that doesn't? How lucky am I? Pay the most in property taxes and be the last to benefit... freakin Democrats!) But I digress... I specifically pulled him from school and we went to the zoo that day. I didn't have him participate because I wanted him (and me...boo hooo) to only have to go through that ONCE! :) So he'll do it NEXT year! :)

Didn't the show The Incredibles talk about something like that... Mr. Incredible did I think. LOL

Noooooo, I can't take the thought of my little man in school. I'm trying to grapple with the fact that he's walking. Ah ha
