Anyway... we had a tasty family dinner this evening, and I dragged the three of them into the backyard to pose for me in the last light of the day. The photo reminded me of an old one I took back in 1993, when the boys were 1 and 3. How time flies!
We just said goodbye to Little Bear as he left for the college - back for another week of fun and games! I'm so thankful that although he's "away" at school, we can still see him throughout the year and continue to enjoy watching him grow up. It never ends. I always enjoyed the different stages the boys went through as babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and so on. I'm still enjoying it as they make the transition to adulthood.
Here's one of my favourite quotes on parenting, by Elizabeth Stone: Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.
