Adoption and Time . . . it's either too slow or too fast

We are always telling our children it is time to stop growing. They just don't seem to listen. ;)

Each day, each month, each year, passes so quickly that I almost don't know what to do but to keep pressing on. When you missed many years in the lives of your children, you don't want to miss another moment.

Adoption and time. At first it is the waiting, as time seems to drag by. All you can think about is every moment and memory lost with the child you are waiting to bring home. Then, once the child is in your arms, time stops crawling at turtle speed, and instead becomes a high speed race. Now instead of desperation over the wait, you are desperately grasping to every memory and moment as you watch your children grow before your eyes at breakneck speed.

So it is with great sadness that the summer draws to a close for me. This is also why I have been absent from my blog to some degree. I just wanted to make memories and bask in the glory of summer vacation with my children. I'm sure you understand.

Anthony turns 10 in September. I can't believe it. What's a mama to do?! Double digits!

Grace turns 5 in November. WHAT?!! NO!!

Adam and I have decided they aren't allowed to get any older.

Although, as we begin school and move forward with their new ages, I can't help but get excited when I see how excited they are.

How was your summer? Are you ready for school?
