Today was the presidential wax museum for the third grade. And this is my little James Monroe.
She, as well as her other fabulous presidential friends, did a super fabulous job. It was hard to believe that I was sitting there- in a third grade presentation. The time has gone so quickly, she is growing so very fast. I glanced at Emily during the program, who will begin school here next year, and thought to myself "fasten your seatbelt, it's getting ready to start again".
I love seeing her grow and change. And the fact that she wrote and memorized her presentation is so impressive to me. Because 2 1/2 days ago I gave birth to her and she is just a newborn baby. Wow, how could the time go any faster?
I treasure the fact that I have gotten to be at home with her the majority of her life (despite working from home- at least she was still in my proximity : ) because everything is moving so quickly- at least I know I couldn't have slowed it down if I had tried. I do try- and it's useless- there is no way to squeeze more time from a day. And these little people just continue to grow and change. Despite their mommas tears and screaming.
So there it is. Allyson's big day. President Monroe. For me, more of a realization that we have just one more year in the elementary, and then we move on to intermediate. Yikes!
