Where Does the Time Go?

In some ways, it's hard to believe that this week is the final week for Hannah being off track. And then some days, when the girls are at one another constantly, I can't believe we still have one week of being off track. LOL.

When it's the last week of 'vacation', I always feel like I need to get as much shoved into the week as possible. Today, my car is in the shop getting brakes, a couple of tires, and an oil change, which helps in us getting things done around the house - laundry, mopping, cleaning. Hannah is working on finishing up her homework packet and then we can play the rest of the week. A trip to Disneyland for sure, perhaps a trip to Encinitas to visit Uncle Bart for his birthday, a trip to the park with friends, and a birthday slumber party to go to at the end of the week.

Once Hannah goes back to school next Monday, she'll have ten weeks of school left and then her 3rd grade year will be behind her. She'll be nine in just a few short weeks and I can't believe it. There's also kindergarten registration coming up for Rachel and the thought that our 'baby' will be in kindergarten come August simply blows my mind.

I feel like time is moving at warp speed. Why was it that time seemed to move as slow as a turtle when we were kids, that Christmas took forever to come every year. But now as adults with children and busy lives, Christmas and life in general seems to come at warp speed?

Does anyone else feel that way??

Yesterday I needed to look up something on one of the kids' blogs, and I ended up getting sidetracked browsing through looking at pictures from three years ago. I almost cried looking at some of those baby face pictures! They have grown so fast, and I know the next ten or twelve years will fly by as well. It is sobering and helped me enjoy them more today as we went through our normal hectic Monday routine.

Last week, I was dusting and changing out the pictures in the display case in our entertainment center, I found the little album of all the pictures of when Hannah was born, in addition to our little album of wedding pictures. Rachel and Hannah both enjoyed looking at the albums, etc.

But when I see how much their faces have changed, especially Hannah in the last couple of years, she's not a little girl anymore......
