Their transition back to bookbags and busy schedules reminds me of how fast the years are passing. These annual milestones come around all too quickly. How can this summer be over? How can my little ones already be in first and third grade? How can they already be so damn tall?
It makes me realize the value in appreciating the moment, embracing the journey and not wasting any time with disappointments or complaints. Let the new school year begin with triumphant applause. And let us boldly move forward with the milestones, as fast and fleeting as they seem.
It’s all good.
