This week, everyone's social media has been filled with back-to-school photos. I thought it would be fun to get in on the action myself, with this little gem from 1998.
This was Garrett's first day of 1st grade and Gabrielle's of 3rd grade. Though I didn't know it at the time, this would be our last first day at a traditional school, as before the year was out, we began to homeschool.
Though it seems like just yesterday, my precious children were this age, the reality is, it was eighteen years ago! It's a good time to remind you young moms that these days with little ones in your home really are fleeting. Though it may seem like they will be forever needy and that you will never have a moment to yourself, the truth is, the exhausting days will be gone before you know it...probably before you're ready for it. In the blink of an eye, you will have a quiet house...a neat house...and plenty of time to pursue your own interests. Only thing is, you may not want those things anymore. You'll be wishing for the chance to turn the clock back and to relive the "little kid" years all over again.
So, young moms, hang in there. The days are long, but the years are very short!! This back-to-school photo is proof of that.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope your visit has been enjoyable and that you will return again soon. Blessings upon you, my friends,
