I, like many others, have spent the last 18 years watching something grow. I'm not talking about my garden or my business. I am talking about my sons, the oldest of which now 18, graduates in just over 2 weeks from high school and I can not believe how true (and now detested) the saying is, "it goes so fast!"
I must admit it is bittersweet in how much he tries my patience at times, how much he eats, how much dirty laundry he can create and yet how much I am going to miss him when he leaves the nest for college this August! What I wouldn't give to be back in the elementary school days!
