Well thats it , I am officially OLD!

Well thats it, I am officially Old... I use to think only OLD people said things like, where did the week go, or where did the year go... Or my all time favorite, enjoy every moment with your kids because in no time they will be grown up and out of the house... Well here it is... I don't know where my week went, I can not even begin to tell you how fast last year went, and now looking at my three kiddos panic is starting to kick in about how many years I have before they all go off to College. I am at a loss... Its as if there is a thief out behind our house that is just robbing me of time. It is all going so quickly...

In the movie Aviator there is a scene where Leonardo Decaprio (while previewing his epic movie) realizes that the planes appear to be moving so slowly because of the blue cloudless sky. With no markers (clouds) in the sky everything appears to be moving slowly. When you add markers you realize the fast rate of speed in which the planes are moving... I feel like that is my life... When we didn't have kids life just kind of ticked by, but now we have kids and lots of markers.

Our markers tend to be a bit more action packed than white fluffy clouds. Learning to walk, School years, Loosing teeth, Learning to ride a bicycle and every parent know that the list goes on and on.  Every time we hit one of these markers I am both overjoyed and filled with sadness because we will never again hit or use that marker. Life moves so very fast, I wish I could be a little more laid back so I could fully enjoy the ride. But that is not my personality, I have to remind myself to sit back and enjoy every moment. So this weekend I am going to do just that...
We are kicking off the summer with our first camping trip of the season. Don't worry I will bore you with plenty of pictures from the trip. This is going to be a laid back weekend with nothing on the agenda except family time... Some long overdue family time!


  1. Hook up your wagon and go and play... and I am for sure planning on seeing all the photos... cuz I luvs my babies, big and little! lol!

  2. Have a wonderful time. Yes, the time speeds by. But believe it or not, you will still find lots to be proud of when they hit adulthood. The relationship changes, but they are still your kids. Love, Aunt Linda
