Where Has Time Gone?

Where has time gone? Oh, heart is hurting and it is bursting with pride...all at the same time.

This is my last child at home...then my home will be empty. Yes, it will be in 4 more years but they will be gone before we know it. To was just yesterday but my husband said a few minutes ago..."seems like a long time ago to me"...guess that's the different in mothers and fathers.

It was just yesterday that...
  • my son was born
  • that he took his first steps
  • spoke his first word
  • went to preschool
  • started kindergarten
  • played his first game of t-ball
  • played his first game of peewee basketball
  • brought home his first report card
  • brought home his first homemade Christmas ornament...which still hangs on the tree
  • went to church camp
  • played his first game of flag football
  • played his first game of contact football
  • went through elementary school
  • went through intermediate school
  • went through middle school
  • became a member of the youth group
  • played 7th grade school football
  • entered jr. high school
  • played 8th grade football
  • made jr. high track team
  • went on his first youth missions trip
  • took his driver's test and passed:)
  • drove my car for the 1st time

I am so proud of Tyler...he has grown into a very responsible, Christian young man. He is a leader, giving, well-mannered, polite, considerate, family oriented, excellent student, thoughtful, friends with everyone, fun loving and handsome young man. Is it obvious...just how much we love him and how very, very proud we are of him? I hope so...because we are:)


  1. It's hard seeing them grow up, isn't it? I'm in the same boat.

    I wanted to connect with you, to make sure you got my email yesterday. If you didn't get it check spam. If you still don't see it, contact me please. (It'll be from a hoosier family.) Thanks. :0)
