I’m so excited that Alison and Galit have brought back Memories Captured this month. I love this link-up because it allows me to step back for a moment and remember the memories at hand. We all complain that times moves too quickly, right? Especially as parents? Well, here’s one chance that I have to slow things down.
I decided to do this post in the same format that I wrote in October. Much of it still holds true.
The two of you are finishing another year of school.
One of you will be graduating from Kindergarten.
One of you will be entering pre-K.
The two of you have grown so much over the past year yet your proportions have remained the same with
One of you only reaching the shoulders of the other.
Only one of you can still fit in my lap.
One of you has become a virtual chatterbox over the past year.
One of you has remained a kind hearted friend.
One of you wants to be a teacher, pilot, train conductor or mailman when you grow up.
One of you wants to be a musician on the stage – with a microphone and a guitar.
Both of you love creating art.
One of you prefers meticulous maps and family portraits.
One of you prefers scribble scrabble and collages.
Both of you like building mega cities and airports around the house until
One of your decides to knock it down.
Both of you love singing at the top of your lungs.
Both of you know all the words to Bryan Adams’ Summer of ’69.
Both of you sing it over and over (and over and over).
Good thing it’s summer because I think that we’ve found our summer anthem.
What memories are you capturing?
