Our time is filled these days with activities to commemorate the school year that is ending: the learning, the friendships, the growth in each child. There are events, parties... my heart gets squeezed every time I think about Abbott being a second grader (!) next year; about Cal graduating from his preschool to attend preK at his brother's elementary school. I watch my children grow. I remember being six years old. I wonder what they will remember from this time in their life. I wonder if they have met any friends that they will have as adults. Last night after dinner we took a walk, and I saw signs of moving on everywhere - the springtime iris wilting, blackberries starting to form, the first poppy of the year. And the cycle of life continues.
