I feel like I'm on a bullet train that's speeding through summer. Maybe it's because Amelia is getting ready to start school, but I've never dreaded the end of summer before in my life, until now. Fall is my favorite season. I always look forward to it, but this year I dread it's arrival. In 3 weeks my girl will be starting kindergarten. Not just half day kindergarten, but full days. Amelia is growing up too fast and I find myself both incredibly sad at the quick transformation and in complete awe at how amazing she is. People always tell new moms that the time goes by so fast. That you'll blink and your kids will be grown up and off to school. That's my life right now and I'm afraid that if I blink again she will be starting high school. If only we could keep them little forever. I'm still trying to cram in as much as possible before that first school bell rings. The past few days I pushed work to the side and focused on making fun memories with my family. And while the remainder of the cucumbers that I had planned to can started to mold, and my bedroom is a disaster and there is laundry to wash... I'm grateful for days like we've had. Days where we step away from the constant hustle and bustle of a busy life and just enjoy our daughter. After all, they're only little for a short time.
