The first day of school for A.

Today, was A's first day of school. Do you remember your first day of school? I do. At the time I was living in Bremerton, Washington (my dad was still in the Navy). I remember walking to kindergarten with my mom. I don't I have too many memories from that year. Our family moved at the end of that year to New Mexico. I was happy to leave Bremerton...for the simple fact that it rained practically every day. It wasn't a lot of rain but, it really rained just about everyday. That is a big deal as a kid because if it is raining that means your are stuck inside.

Back to A's first day of school....she was very excited and had not one iota of visible fear. She did pause as she peered into her classroom for the first time. I could only wonder what was she thinking as she was about to enter into her next stage in life. Only she knows...

Time just flies by.....it amazes me. I am the only who feels the older I get the faster the world moves around me, especially "my" world?

It seems like just yesterday A. was born and, before I know it, she will be graduating from high school.

Today was a good day. One of those days where everything is right. One of those days I wish I could slow time down....here's partially why...

I talked to Dianna after she picked A. up from her first day..... A. told her "today was the best of my life!" Wow, such enthusiasm.

No, grampa died two months ago, and it feels like two weeks. Feel your pain.
