They grow fast

It seems that time flies, especially when you have seen your kids grow and realizing that this is the second to last HS band concert they will be in. And given the small size of the band, they sounded excellent, as always.

For Kid2, the list of remaining Senior things to occur will be occurring in short order: The prom in two weeks, band adjudication, senior dinner, Spring Pops concert, graduation, etc. I do remember the earliest days with them, going back to Kid1's arrival on 12/29/88. They grow, pretty fast. We see that college life agrees with Kid1, and know that it will for Kid2.

It is easy to remember when they were little and how thy have acquired much knowledge, confidence, poise, faith and a sense of values. Wistful we may be, but proud and very happy we remain as well.

I know the feeling! I'm finding it hard to believe that Amanda will be ending her Sophomore year soon and that she will be a Junior next year. It's most definitely flying! At least I've got quite a few more concerts to enjoy but before I know it, it's going to be her Senior concert and then what?!?
