Barefoot by the Sea: Take it ALL in

Take it ALL in

As of today, my 2nd grader officially has 1.5 days of school left.  Yesterday was a fun filled field day.  Today, more excitement. Monday she will participate in "step up day".  Ugh, even as I write this, my emotions are getting the best of me.  Yes, I'm "that Mom".  The Mom who seems to weep at every season, every accomplishment, every stage.  I even found myself tearing up yesterday as I watched my sweet Sydney exclaim, "I'll be going to school soon Mama!"  Yes, I'm happy for's my mission to develop them into wonderful human beings - or to try my hardest to do so.  Still, I can't help but remembering everyone approaching my tiny baby in the grocery store saying:

"Be careful.  Take it all in.  It flies by" 

It truly does.  But it's been wonderful and I know I have several more years that, in retrospect will pass at warp speed.  For now, I'm going to take it all in.  I've thought a lot about a blog vacation and I'm going to start that as of today.  I don't know how long I'll be gone and I'm hoping to still blog 2-3 times a week this Summer.  That being said, time is just too precious for me to be sitting in front of my computer and talking about living - for now, I'm going to get out there with the kids and enjoy this special Summer with them.

Time is a wasting.  It is just too precious.  Still, please come back to read and check in!  I love all my readers who provide me with wisdom, humor and fun. 

Have a wonderful weekend, Happy Father's Day and for those of you who are just starting Summer vacation.....HAVE A WONDERFUL SUMMER VACATION!
