Never Take A Day For Granted

As we ease back into the old routines of school and work days and every day starts to blur, don't forget to take a moment to enjoy your kids because time moves so quickly.

My Little Man is becoming a Big Boy. Almost five years old and starting his second year of school.
I remember last year this time I was so nervous, not sure my little three year old was ready, but he has grown and matured so much! This year, I hope he will not be the youngest in the class and he'll already know some of the students and teachers. He just seems so much more mature to me now than ever before and I think that helps.

I am really looking forward to the simplicity of the school schedule. I don't have to think as much about how the day will go. The only thing that throws a loop into my plans is if he gets sick and has to stay home, but otherwise, the song remains the same, as they say.

Still, I feel like I need to really take in all these moments while he is still small. In the coming weeks, I'm going to take imprints of his hands and feet. He's gone up another shoe size and I'll need to buy him new boots and a snow suit for winter.

I am trying to write down all the funny things he says. I don't know if I can keep up!

We can't slow down time, but we can make sure to appreciate it and never take a day for granted.

Smiles are precious - never take a day for granted on One Quarter
Grass is meant to be run through.
Puddles are meant to be jumped in.
Flowers are meant to be picked.
Dirt is temporary.
Smiles are precious.
Enjoy it while it lasts.
