13 days until school starts

Wednesday, August 22, 2007

But who's counting? It's just that time of the summer that no matter what, the bickering is becoming more frequent, the days seem longer, our house feels smaller and everyone seems to be craving structure. That's why we call it a "season". It's not supposed to last forever. Although there are some aspects of this time I would love to bottle up for eternity. Kindergarten, third and fifth grade is a "golden time". They're more and more self sufficient, still want to be with you and yet possess that innocence and naivete which proves they're still so young. I know this time is passing so quickly and I don't wish it away any longer like I did those toddler and preschool years. 13 days back then felt like a year. Now it feels like 24 hours.
