As of 2:40pm today, another year of school is all wrapped up. Excited, emotional, anxious, and all the rest that another year has passed.
Ethan finished preschool last Tuesday. He loved it! There was not a single day in the last year that his folder came home with anything but green on it (green- good, yellow- a few issues, red- bad!) Ethan has really taken to drawing and coloring this year. (something Andrew still doesn't like to do). It is fun to see how Ethan is developing different strengths. I love to see his crazy pictures and notes he draws! We have enrolled him in Pre-K at Gum Springs (Andrew's school), and while I have mixed feelings about starting there so young, I am looking forward to one school and one schedule. (We didn't exactly have much choice, but as my wise sister-in-law said--"you do your best with what you have, and let the rest go"--I'm trying) He is most excited that he will get to eat lunch at Andrew's school!

Okay enough bragging, but I needed a journal entry, and the grandparents come here for this stuff-- not the useless ramblings in my brain!
So.. off for another summer!
And a parting thought. As I walked the dogs this morning I walked past a house in the neighborhood with signs and balloons and writing on the car windows. Their son was graduating from High School this week. And it struck me-- in 11 very short years this will be us. How quickly those 18 years of anticipation come and go. I'd better enjoy the short time I have in the throes of it all.
