Soaking up the Moments

When Brogan was a baby and I was still working as a 5th grade teacher, I remember looking at the kindergarten students walking in a cute little line down the hallway, thinking, “I wonder what Brogan will be like when he’s in kindergarten.”

It felt like an eternity away. Like I had all the time in the world.

Then I blinked.

And this happened…

In a little over a month, my little man starts kindergarten.

Which means these final weeks are precious weeks. I will be spending them outside in bare feet with my boy. And when I’m not, I’ll be inside working on edits. Blogging’s going to have to wait until I pack up his lunch and kiss his cheeks and send him off to school.

See you all after Labor Day!

How will you be spending the rest of your summer?

  1. Thank you for your words in Guideposts about adoption. I asked that same question. Thank you for your honesty.

    And then…all of a sudden…it’s time to say good-bye to elementary school all together! I cried like a baby on Field Day this year as my youngest is entering middle school and my oldest is entering high school. Not for a millions dollars would I trade all of the time I spent on working with the parent committee, helping with Elves workshop, listening to kids reading in class or attending 9 years of fields days in a row!! Cherish every minute of it that you have!!!!!

  4. As you know, I’m the mother of an incoming kindergartner, too. It flew by! SO crazy.

  5. Good for you, Katie. It is hard to move onto that next stage. Enjoy the time with your precious son.
