I can hardly believe how quickly these days of summer are coming to an end. My heart sighs as this reality starts to sink in. LuLu starts school next week. Truth be told I would just as soon keep her home. She begins a new journey in her life as she will enter into Junior high as a 7th grader. I would choose to home-school her in this phase of her school life if I thought I could be disciplined enough to do it. And of course she would have to be a willing participant and there is no way in heck that this child of mine would ever consider this. She definitely has a mind of her own and she is quite the social child. She loves people and thrives in the company of others. I will worry and stress over the things I don't want her sweet spirit exposed to. But I know that this season in her life will be sweet and she will bloom and grow like a beautiful summer flower. And just like these fleeting days of summer I will savor each and every moment... for I know all to well that this season of her life will pass much to soon. Savor these sweet moments with your little one's- in a blink of an eye, they are all grown up.
