Since my last post…
I started a new job.
We found out Katie is pregnant!
Eden started kindergarten.
Needless to say (but I’ll go ahead anyway), a lot has changed. The last several months have been a blur. It’s been one of the craziest times of my life. For the most part, it’s been a good crazy.
Some of my favorite memories from Eden’s preschool days took place in the morning, when I was leaving for work. Some days, as I was leaving, she would hear me go outside. Since her bedroom window faces the driveway she would get out of bed, walk over to her window, and peek out the blinds to watch me drive away. Some days she would crack the blinds wide enough so I could see her waving as I backed out of the driveway. I would always blow her a kiss.
A few weeks after Eden started school, a thought occurred to me. Her days of watching me pull out of the driveway in the mornings are over. I have fond memories of those days but I’ll never get them back. Granted, she’s doing new adorable things like singing praise songs all the time, learning to spell, and giving me a kiss everyday before she gets out of the car to go into school. There will likely be new, wonderful memories. But, I still can’t get those old days back.
Eden is doing great. She loves kindergarten and we do too! As she continues to grow up, this prayer comes to mind…
Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom. Psalm 90:12
