Time Marching On

Time is moving so quickly right now that I’m referencing spans of time by hair appointments, as in “I feel like I just got my hair cut last week!” But, you know, it’s been a month.

It seems like yesterday that Second Born Son got his driver’s license, but it has been four months. But maybe I’m not a good gauge of time since I think this was last year….

Cutie Patootie!

…when this was last year….

You don’t want to know what went into this document….

 

So you will understand why I’m a little twisted around about the idea of this infant going to ANOTHER COUNTY on ANOTHER CONTINENT for TEN DAYS!!!

Seems like only yesterday that he told us about the planned Vimy Ridge trip, waaaaaay off in the Spring of 2017. The trip sounded amazing and included a couple of days in England, followed by 8 days in France. Several students from his school are going and they get to be part of the the 100th Vimy Ridge Celebration on April 9th.

I am proud and jealous at the same time, but mostly excited for him and the experiences he will enjoy. This is a wonderful age to travel and observe such an important tribute to Canadians and their contributions and sacrifices in World War I.

So, the bag is packed, the documents are in place and the momma isn’t going to get weepy when it’s time to say goodbye.

‘Cuz we got him a great cell package and I’m sure we’ll hear from him daily…..

  1. Hi Sarah, Delightful!! And my granddaughter Hannah is off to London, England with her high school band (Guelph CI) right after Easter.  How fast the years go by!! xxjudy

  2. Hi Sarah I was having a discussion along the lines of how busy our lives are with a friend of mine. He turned to me and said “we must like it like this, because we made it like this”. I thought how true. We make time for we want to do and excuses for what we don’t want to do. Just a thought.

    • Well, I can agree to a point, but sometimes we are obligated and don’t have as much of a say. Regardless, we need to make time for a visit!!!
