It’s the beginning of September and a new gallery over at Write.Click.Scrapbook. and this month is a walk down memory lane. Our gallery theme for the month is “A Look Back” and I loved seeing everyone’s take on the theme for the month.
This month’s theme came at just the right time for me. My little girl is starting her last year of elementary school. Next year we’re on to the big time-dreaded middle school. With that I wanted a little stroll down memory lane back to when she first started elementary school and I thought that was the big time!
Who would have thought all that change would take place in 5 short years?! Still one of the most kind and thoughtful people I know with those same piercing green eyes, but so much growth and learning in those years for all of us. Who knew all that would happen it just 5 short years – school changes, deployments, moves, and lots of independence.
It’s hard to believe that in just another 5 short years I’ll be writing and comparing a 5th grader to a high schooler. Blows my mind right out of the water. And knowing how fast these 5 years went, I know the next 5 will be even faster and more of a whirlwind. Where is that life stop button again?!
For now, I’ll just savor every moment she still wants me around, wants me to give her a big hug and kiss at school drop off and lets me hold her hand when we are out in public. It’ll be gone way too quickly.
Thanks for stopping by!
