Reality Check - Yikes, It's Already February

OK~ Here we go! It's already Mid-February and this Mom needs to get serious about planning a high school graduation party. The date and location need to get nailed down soon. It's hard to believe that our youngest will graduate from high school in a few months.

I can recall the day that my boys were 4 and 8. In the back of my mind I was thinking,"Wow, they will be 8 and 12 someday down the road." Well, we passed those ages a long, long time ago.

Today is Valentine's Day and I can recall all of those classroom parties. There were many Valentine's, candy, and games in the busy classrooms. Now it's just another day for work and/or school. This is all a reality check, life goes fast people- get out and enjoy it!

An adventure over Spring Break and the beginning of a high school trapshooting season will kick off the final 2 1/2 months of the school year. I will be at a point in my life where the start and end dates of the school calendar year will no longer matter. I can kind of remember those days!

The calendar is telling me that February is almost 1/2 over, and the sunshine until about 5:45 p.m., is telling me that Spring is actually coming. Surprisingly, I have birds chirping in my yard this morning. Do you think they are a little confused? Yesterday this pond in the yard served up one big mud party for our dogs and 17 year old son- you gotta love Winter in Iowa!

Two muddy dogs, a 17 year old's muddy boots- life is good! Now to embrace the rest of the school year and focus on the future. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
