You Only have 18.

We have had so much rain.....  so ....   we decided to go on an adventure.  Just the other day I was reading over at Ann's place...  I am sure all of you know by now how I share lots of Ann's stuff.
Anyway,  she talked about Seizing the Last of the Summer

Even though we finished our first week of school on Friday....    it is still "summer" here in South Georgia!  Take a look at Ann's list.... some really great suggestions....   try some....  

one of the many things she said was.... "You only get 18 summers with your kids or maybe not even 18... or less."   I am really feeling that as Dakota is now at VSU.  Wasn't it yesterday that he was only on his 6th summer?

So ... here is our adventure....   Lysa, Wyatt, Wesley and I....

Not the greatest pics.... taken with my phone. Memories made. I think about Ann's words and let them sink in.... only 18....     so ....   I have 8 more summers with Wesley....  only 8, I have 7 more summers with Wyatt.....   and I have 3 more summers with Lysa.  Wow. why do we waste so much time ... when time is ticking away?

Seize the moment.....   for soon it will be gone.


Be the gift....

  1. So true! Thanks for the reminder! It's easy to get way too busy & forget what's most important...easy to put off kids 'til tomorrow because they are with us everyday.
