I can't believe it's the end of the first quarter! This year has flown by. My seventh graders this year are a dream . They make my two hours of 8th graders tolerable and sometimes even enjoyable.

My own kids are growing up. Tonight we went to the school carnival. I was informed that they did not want me to walk around with them. They are nine, and I guess it's time for that. I'm not sad, just shocked. I'm shocked that it's here already. Where did the time go? I know I sound like a cliche, but it's so true. I know every mother asks herself this. Believe me, when they were 3 months old, throwing up or teething, when I had such sleep deprivation that I thought I was going to die, I never thought this day would come. Before I know it I will be at their high school graduations. It's weird.
