Grandma is Right…

I’m starting to get it.

This is TK at 3.

This is TK recently.


This is what he made at preschool last week.

I know. How cool is that? He can now read 3 and 4 letter words, his favorite thing to do is 100-count dot to dots, and he is bummed when he comes home from ‘school’ and he doesn’t have ‘homework’ to do. So we make it up!

Grandma is Right…. they do grow up fast. Especially when it’s your youngest. And as much as I LOVE having a few hours 4 days a week while he’s at school.. What will I do next year when he has all day Kindergarten?

Holy cow I remembered to post for wordful wednesday, yay Angie!

    Beautiful child – and this post brought back so many beautiful memories. Yes, young lady, treasure these days. Precious. My kids are all grown, I get to see my daughters oh, maybe once or twice in a month – the one daughter has four little ones that just burst my heart open with joy and the younger daughter is pregnant with her first baby. And my son – he’s off in the Big Apple making a go at forging his own life and career. I get text pics and email, but no hugs except maybe once or twice a yeah – Grandma is right, honey. So am I.Grandpa Wilson

    Yes, they do! Its bittersweet. Luke looks so different now too. Just last summer he still had a little boyish look and now he looks like a little man. I love when Luke brings home “homework” from preschool. Its so cute! He also loves to write his name in the snow…fun!
