Where Do The Years Go?

You always hear the adage "they grow up so fast". Lex and Alec turned 9 and 7 this month, (17th and 29th). Dscn0199

I'm continually amazed by both of them and by Ashley who's now 17 and is in the process of interviewing schools for her next challenge. I look at the calendar and it's 2005 but I clearly remember it being 1977 and me graduating from high school and off to college - although that was 28 years ago! I learn different things from each one of my kids as I observe and interact with them. Each with their own unique way of contributing to the world, of impacting others. As Alec turned 7 yesterday Christine was having a difficult time seeing "her baby" transition into being a young man as if there's something magical about a date on a calendar associated with how many years you've been alive. I remember my parents being "worried" about their kids growing up and what the world would be like for them. I look at the rate of change we have in our world and see nothing but excitement and opportunity for their future. So I sit and smile each time I look at them, each time I talk to them knowing that they make a difference.
