How did this happen?!

Tomorrow B will be heading off to school for the first time. I'm spending this evening stuffing his Schultütte and trying not to think about the fact that my youngest child is now in elementary school!

I've always inwardly groaned when people say "Enjoy them while you can because it goes so fast!" But there's a reason that that's become a cliché. Where has the time gone?!

Amazing, isn't it? No wonder so many mothers take up photography or writing... some way to practice attention.

Of course, another response to that age-old question, where has the time gone, is this: to my hips. obviously.

I hope it's gone well. It really does fly by, doesn't it? And LOL, Anno... no way!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Jack Kornfield's book A Path With Heart is wonderful.

Our youngest just started University in Montreal, and I'm amazed at how quickly that came about. One day I was kissing him outside his kindergarten class-room (much to his embarassment!) and the next minute I'm moving him into his dorm room.
