The kids are growing like weeds, life is crazy busy...it is a whirlwind. I am scrapping many photos right now of events or moments that happened only a few months ago. Yet, they feel really far away.
I have blogged here before about how great it has been to meet my family on my biological father's side. Steve and I continue to look back fondly on our trip to DC and the time spent with my brother, his wife and daughter.
When I look at this photo, it seems like it was so long ago. It feels like forever since I went to Georgia. Everyone is well...thank goodness for Facebook. Scrapping these moments allows me to return in time. Think about those feelings and reflect.
This was a great day...a great experience. I am so thankful.

Knowing the importance of these moments as well as feeling like time is moving reminds me to hold tight. I feel so compelled to have at least one strong bonding moment with my kids each day. Not just homework and dinner and showers. But reading books and cuddles. Conversations about what they worry about or what makes them happy. Tickles and jokes even when it is time for light's out.
Because I know that these moments are amazing...yet, time will go quickly. I don't want to be left feeling like it was so long ago...
Although I know that is inevitable, I am determined to make memories so strong...they won't soon fade.
