So it begins

Today I picked up Lucas' school registration form! I cannot believe he is going to start school this fall. I have always heard you should enjoy these years, that they will go really fast and you will wish for them back. I have also heard things like, little kids--little problems; big kids--big problems. I have always heard this but I think this past week I have finally felt this. Lucas will be starting kindergarten in six months!

Gone will be our often simple days of playing, eating and staying in our pajamas all day if we want to! Before I know it there will be homework, friends I don't know and so many extra activities.

It made me wish I could go back and enjoy it all a little more. Now, don't get me wrong. I feel like I am a pretty good mom. I chose to be a stay-at-home mom and have devoted my life to my kids... I guess I am realizing that I didn't always put my heart into it and enjoy it like I should or could have.

This precious time where I can teach, protect, even shelter is staring to grow smaller. But these new adventures will be good to. I really can't entertain Lucas 24/7 and give him all that he needs myself. He loves how things work and loves books so he will soon be exposed to so many more. It will be a change... this time really does go fast! I wish I would have felt this a little sooner.
