Back to school 2014 ....

She rode.
He drove.

It's here, the first day of school!

6:30 am - My son drove off for his first day of his Junior year in high school. I waved and blew kisses. (I couldn't help myself ... I also wanted to shout: "Make good choices!" But I didn't.)

7:25 am - I rode my bike with my daughter to her friend's. As we were riding, I said something about us for sure needing to wear helmets in the future and she said: "Mom, you're not going to ride with me everyday ... are you?" No, I assured her. Just today. It's your first day of middle school!

Amazing how new school years have a way of helping us see time and it's flying wings - that never slow down or stop.

I hope my kids have a wonderful day!

Cheers to time and getting older and 'letting go' ....

I'm never ready to see my kids grow up, but they do. My goodness, how to they grow so fast? It hit me recently that I only have 4 more years before my oldest heads out the door, and I'm SO not ready for that.
