It’s quiet here. I rarely find myself alone with my thoughts these days. In fact, I’m not quite sure how to think anymore without a million to-do’s in my mind and then hunting up my checklist to add that last one that came to mind. Can I get an amen?!

I cannot believe this kiddo will be making his way back home today from 5th grade camp. In this picture, he had recently turned 5, and I could not believe I would soon send my first born off to kindergarten (much less 5th grade camp!). This little 5 year old in the bucket had been the oldest of 4 since he was 2 1/2, so he was pretty much full-grown at this point (to me anyway).
The other day I had to find a picture of Graham from kindergarten and then one from this year for a yearbook dedication for 5th grade. Here is what I found:
Lord, help me to invest in this precious time with this boy who is growing up before my very eyes!
