As I look around, both here in blogland and in my life, it seems like there is such a huge transition that happens in June. Our babies grow up, they graduate, they move on. So I am taking this time to say – stop, breathe, enjoy the moment. And take a picture please. You may think you’ll remember the cute way they scrunch their nose. Or how their little tongue peaks out when they’re doing their homework. But so many of these moments are lost to the rush of time in our daily lives. Someday, they’ll treasure the memories those photos represent, and that we cared enough to capture those times.
As for me, I have two graduations next week – my baby goes on to middle school (which I’d like to protest please. She only turned 10 yesterday!) and my son goes on to high school (which starts in 8th grade here. Yeah, I want to protest that too!). I’m so crazy about these two, it is unbelievable. I am proud of them and all they do, but yet I want just for a minute to capture their little sweet hands and hold on a moment. I can’t freeze time. But I can capture the memory. Don’t wait. Take a picture please.
