Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.
– Albert Einstein
Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
Graduated college, launched careers, dated, dated so more, good dates, bad dates, break ups… found the one!
Moved in together, got married, first home in the burbs, trips to Home Depot, 2nd Jobs, margarita parties with friends, ski vacations, weekends at the beach…Pregnant!?
New jobs, moved to another state, new baby proofed home, diapers, lawn mowers, best pre-schools supplanted discussions of best ski spots, late nights now 11pm, bundle of joy #2 on the way… Mini Van 🙁
Karate, Little League baseball, football, soccer, ice hockey, return of ski vacations! Christmas play, bake sales, working the school fair, piano lessons, guitar lessons…SUV 🙂
2nd careers, multi-family vacations, best high schools, HS sports, new drivers lic, fender bender, next fender bender, dating, Prom, SAT prep, college tours, college costs what!? He’s off to college… Graduated college
Old Ferris hit the nail on the head: “life moves pretty fast….”
The wonderful mash up of raising the kids, careers, connections with friends old & new; it’s all moved at a dizzying pace. As proud parents, we wouldn’t change a thing (Well, could have done without the mini van)! That said, looking ahead, a little quality “US” time might be in order. How can we maximize this next phase of our lives?
