Life happens when you aren't paying attention.

In yet another of those moments that make me realize I'm rapidly getting old and life is traveling at the speed of sound, Rakes graduated from kindergarten this week.

The fact he made it a whole year without getting called to the Principle's office and somehow managed to avoid getting in the middle of a rumble are just bonus points.

He learned how to read, get along with others, and only left his lunchbox or coat on the bus every other day. I always knew how his day went from the minute he got home. If it was good, he hollered "I'm on Green!" and if it was bad he had 17 excuses for why he was on yellow, and a couple of occasions, red.

Couple that with Ciera going to Middle School and Ang rejoining the PAID workforce and it was quite the year. Tomorrow is the last day before summer break and soon it'll be the pool, suntans, and the always popular "Why do I have to go to bed at 9 o'clock? It's still LIGHT out".


My little boy isn't quite so little anymore and it's all going a little too fast for my taste.

Feeling ya bro. They grow up way to fast. I'm debating writing the sob-fest that will be, should I choose to dwell on my first born turning 4 today!!!

Don't dwell, Mattie. It doesn't do any good.

Will you two quit crying over your children puhlease! And Uncle Matt you should have said "They grow up TOO fast" -- just a correction. Haha :)
