Perhaps it is too soon to start crying about Elliott going off to school everyday, like Abigail is, but perhaps once that time comes (next fall) I’ll be over it and smiling brightly as my little boy proudly tosses his backpack over his shoulders and joins his sister for the ride to school and the walk through the doors of CHCA.
Where does the time go? I’ve always been aware that the time would fly by; having a family is such a busy and full affair, sometimes I feel like I’m taking a ride down the white water rapids – It’s scary and fun and exciting all at the same time and before you know it, you’re closer to the end than to the beginning.
I just think it will feel so strange and a little bit lonely without my kiddos screams and laughter filling the house, or listening to Elliott chatter to his cars or trains, or give me my own private drum solo show.
I guess there’s always summer … and thank God that at least I’ve been able to stay home with them before they have gone off to school … not saying it’s easy; i just wouldn’t change it for anything though =-) Besides, nothing good comes easy.
