the last day...


Today is Ruby's last day in kindergarten - she's all smiles and I'm a total mess. These milestones are so special (and intense!), they always leave me in a teary emotional puddle. Her first day seemed like yesterday, and I'm amazed at how far she's come in only one year. Congratulations, my sweet, spread your wings and soar! xo, mom  image: taken this morning while she checked on her butterfly cocoons.

I wrote about the freakiness of time today, too, and how I want to stop it and can't. *sigh*

I have a one year old and two year old. I feel time passing so quickly too. I know tomorrow they'll be in kindergarten and the next day college. I just try to soak up every single second.

Ack! Ruby is as old as you and I when we met.
Trip out.

It's so cliche to say but true, time goes by so quickly. Our oldest is going to be in her second year of high school next year and I really have no idea how it happened. Enjoy.
