Back to School!

Can I Carry You?

© Brad Anderson
I guess that I can hold you
one more time before you grow.
And tell you that I love you
so that you will always know.
Please let me tie your shoe again.
One day you'll tie your own.
And when you think back to this time
I hope it's love I've shown..................

Today was a little  lot bit hard for me--they didn't want/need me to walk them into school--they have grown so much--and I am so proud of them--but why did they have to grow so fast!!!

Chase starts 4th grade today--WOW that happened way way too fast!
Jimmy starts 2nd grade today--he has grown up a lot this summer--not just physically but mentally/emotionally too.
Joe--started TEACHING 6th grade this year--what a whirlwind this last year has been for all of us!
Me--what do I do with myself now--I have dreams--but I am not sure I am brave enough to start them!


for the record I cried for a solid 30 minutes before I got up this morning--I will miss these guys--and they both gave me kisses BEFORE we left the house this morning!
