Yesterday was weird. I was in a really good mood, but feeling overwhelmingly sentimental. I think it's cuz it's close to the last day of school for the kids. I can't wait to have them home for the summer...we are all SO ready for a break in the routine...but our youngest is almost out of elementary school...

...almost driving

...almost going to college

...almost gone.

Yup, totally went to the dark side with that. It's an easy place to go when they are growing so fast and there's no way to stop the clock and catch up on everything you are missing while working, cleaning, living.

I am so excited to watch our kids have their own lives and thoughts and dreams...but sometimes it hurts my heart...knowing that all too soon, I will have to let go.

Ugh, so I guess these feelings don't get easier as they grow! Mine are only 6 and 3, and I "go to the dark side" with those feelings almost daily!!

Those strangers who randomly tell you "They grow so quickly. Enjoy it when they're little" don't help ease the sadness one bit!

It's a great reminder to cherish the moments, take tons of photos and enjoy each day as it comes. SOOOO hard to do sometimes, though!!!

Glad to hear I'm not the only "freak" mom who can't wait to have her kids home for the summer. :)
