Have you ever wondered where all the time went? Just this Monday, as my 7 year old grandson was readying himself for school, I suddenly felt like... didn't this same scene happen many years ago? Flashback of those days when my daughter started schooling came rushing through my mind...they were the difficult times when we had to wake up very early from Monday to Friday so she could be in school before 7:15 AM, the stressful time when the schoolbus and a lot of kids in it had to wait for her in front of our gate all because she was not through with her breakfast, the worrisome times when the schoolbus would pass by the house to let us know that they had to leave school without her because she didn't show up and they had a hard time looking for her after school only for us to find out later that she was in the library, the happy times when we would attend school activities because she was either given awards for winning in the many contests she joined or she was participating in a program and many more memorable happenings. Well, these same things are now happening again with my grandson who is now studying in the same school where his mom went. What's nostalgic about all of these is that the school nurses and almost all her teachers are still in that school and one of them is now the principal and the others are officers of the different year levels.

Below are photos taken when they were about to leave for school at age 4 years old. Both were taken in the same spot in front of our house. It's a pity the photo of my daughter didn't come out well. Just shows how old it is.

    Yes come to think of it, time really flies so fast. That was a great post. Yours and mine have almost the same thoughts.
    Mine's up. Come have a look.

    I wonder where the time goes every day. Life seems to be speeding by so fast anymore.

    Hae a lovely Monday.

    It's funny. Back when my kids were in school, and I was waking up to get them ready and off to the bus, I was exhausted. Now that my daughter is nearly 30 I am up on my own at 6 and I am not exhausted. Time flies, and we all change, don't we?

    Sometimes I find myself wishing my life away because I am in a hurry. It is time to stop and enjoy. Thank you for the reminder.

    Those pictures are wonderful.

    Take care,

    Yes, times certainly flies by! Today in fact I saw the school bus driving by...only this time my son wasn't riding it...those years are over. Thanks for your kind words on my blog, Viamarie, I appreciate them!

    Makes me go...
    ahh!
    Time moves so fast, I fear someday it will become a blur and faint hum in my heart

    Just trying to let everyone know I'm back up and going...but it wouldn't let me have back my original URL, which I'm still working on, but I've missed my blogging buddies :-)

    The new URL is http://noaveragegirl1.blogspot.com

    Love you!!!
