It's summer again! Hurray! Sleeping in, the pool, family trips and camp. I'm packing up Alec's food for camp for the second year, and it's not nearly so stressful this time. A bit of this, a bit of that, and he's set for the week!
But there's something different about this summer. My oldest daughter just graduated from high school. Let me type that again. My oldest daughter just graduated from high school. I know they're supposed to grow up, but somehow this still caught me by surprise.
Where did the time go? That's her in the green shirt in the picture above. Seven years ago. Yesterday. Seriously, I thought I'd be the mom with young kids forever. How did I end up with 3 teenagers? How did I end up with a high school graduate? I want more of that summer--or like the ones above. We were wading in the Paluxy River down in Texas near Granbury, looking at the dinasaur footprints.
These days are sweet, too. I wouldn't trade a moment of any day. I just didn't think it would all pass so quickly. I know there is a spiritual application here, but I'm too tired today to try to verbalize it. I'll let you look for it yourself.
Don't waste the days. They are short. And don't forget your camera.
