Ahh immortal words, “Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Ferris Beuller was right. My youngest daughter went to school this year and looking back on it, these past 6 years have gone by very quickly. I look at my youngest and he will be in school in 4 short years.
This year was a different birthday….it just didn’t matter as much. I am not sure why, maybe just getting older. If it wasn’t for the kids it may have passed quietly and been just a blip. I am quite sure that I was more excited for Talk Like a Pirate Day.
Yep, life moves fast, somewhere we all have to find the perspective to look around and see what is actually happening. My oldest is 12 and growing up way too fast. It is disconcerting to think that she will be an adult in only 6 years. Now is the time to make those count, because we cant get them back.
Go outside and enjoy fall. I went camping last weekend. All of the trees were changing, the elk were bugling and the fish were moderately biting. The temperature never got above 70. It was great, and it sure beat cleaning out the garage.
Don’t miss life sitting here in front of a computer. Go live life, winter is coming. (bonus points if you take that as a reference and not a statement of the changing seasons.)
