School is almost over. Sophie graduates from pre-K on Friday, and Chloe says au revoir to 3rd grade next Thursday. I often return to the theme of how quickly they’re growing. But when they hit these milestones, I’m happy and sad at the same time.
Happy because I love to see them thriving, getting bigger and developing their own personalities. Sad because with every stage that comes and goes, the present becomes the past and what’s left are memories. Wonderful memories to be sure, but memories nonetheless.
The good news is that although memories are formed all the time, the future eventually becomes the present. With all the attendant experiences, laughter, tears and smiles.
My cuties – I love them so.
