Where Did The Time Go?

I’d be completely lying if I said that I wasn’t sad when school started last week. I’ve been a mom for 34 years. It’s my life, my career, my everything. It’s the one thing that, I think, I’m pretty decent at. Yes, somedays are long and they drive me crazy and bonkers but I love being a mom. Some moms are happy when school starts, don’t get me wrong I totally get it. For me, it makes me a little emotional, especially this time.

DayZ favorite thing to do all summer long was to go to the Golfing Range and hit golf balls with me and his brother. He was super excited when I found Gary old golf bag in the garage and filled it up with his golf clubs. He was so proud to carry it himself to the Golfing Range. We spent many days at the Golf & Range hitting buckets after buckets of balls he even got me to start hitting golf balls again and enjoying it. It was something that we could do together and I love that.

Summer got off to a different start this year. Taber had his second eye surgery a couple of days before school ended. Happily, the surgery was a success. The flip side, the majority of Tays favorite activities (the hardest being swimming, going to the beach and baseball) had to be put on hold for the remainder of June and all of July, when we received the all clear from the Dr.

This picture was taken at Ocean Beach Park. Tabor love swimming so when he got the okay to swim there was no stopping him. This is a picture of him doing a cannonball in the olympic size pool. He literally swim from the moment we got to the pool until we went home at 6 in the evening. There's a great day and he had so much fun it was a blast watching him have fun.

Although the first part of vacation we kept a very low profile so Taber wouldn’t jeopardize his vision or progress he made, we had a blast creating memories all Summer!! There was laughing and giggles, great trips and vacations, including Florida and Diggerland. We hung out and went to baseball games. Had many late nights, did some serious sleeping in (they are teens) and even had the occasional horsing around and sibling rivalry. And I’m going to miss it. I’M GOING TO MISS THEM.

This is a picture taken on the first day of school going into eighth grade.

Despite me being sad that another school year has approached, I know they were ready. So with all the prepping and shopping and school lunches and hectic schedules, fall ball, basketball, after school activities, blah, blah, blah!!! I’m exhausted just thinking about it, it’s time to get this school year moving.

This is a picture of me walking Taber into school on the first day of school. He was a little apprehensive about going the first day so when he asked me to walk him in of course I said yes. I'm not going to say no that. So we walked in together arm and arm and met his teachers and made sure that he was comfortable and settled in.

In the words of my child when I said I’m going to miss them they replied, “Don’t worry Mommy the year will go fast”. Only that didn’t give me any comfort.
