  ~~~~

Hi Everybody.. What a late post I have. Today is the first day of school for my girls and it was a hard day for me. No they don't go to kindergarten they are all teenagers. I was taking pictures of them like I do ever year for the first day of school and while I was taking them I realized that they are all grown up ..My youngest daughter is entering junior high and she looked so grown up in her pictures, my middle daughter is going to be driving in a few months and my oldest daughter is going to graduate this year.. Yes I know I have a full year but today was the last time I would be taking first day of school pictures of her :(... So I spent the morning be a blubbering idiot!! lol They are are not little anymore..They are young woman!! ....Anyways on to my card before I start bawling again lol.... I am playing along with Flutter by Wednesday and what a week it is over there a huge huge prize be sure to check it out. Mercy has provided the sketch and you need to make a birthday card...

I just went back and re-read your post. I feel the same as you. My son started grade 9 this week and I was ok on Monday as it was registration day and I spent the day there with him. Come Tuesday as he left and turned to wave at me, the tears started. They grow so darn fast!! My daughter starts gr 5 this coming Tuesday. Time just keeps flying by.
