In an instant

The school holidays are different here.

The financial year is different too.  It goes from the 30th June - 1st of July.  

With that said, the kids are finishing school now for the summer.  They have the summer off - which is from December to Feb.  

Yesterday Eve had her end of year school picnic.  

The preps were so cute!

There was so many people there.  The picture you see was zoomed in as far as I could get from my cell.  I have an iphone 4S and it takes good pics, and this one was the best I could get.  

So I was this far away from Eve and as soon as she finished she spotted me.  In an audience of I can't imagine how many people.  She gave me a thumbs up.  

In that instant I froze

I was so proud.  I wondered how I got there?  How did I have a 5 yr old in school?!

THIS is what life is all about.  It's about making these memories.  Eve will never be 5 again.  She will turn 6 on the 1st of Feb.  She will never be this innocent little girl again.  

I need to treasure these moments.  Treasure the kids at this age.  Freeze and enjoy their fights instead of cringing over them.  

Life is so full of lessons.

Such a good reminder Nicole. Mads will be 3 in April, feels like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital, and now shes a true little person. I try to remind myself to cherish every day and always have the camera ready, I dont want to miss (or forget!) a thing!
I hope the girls have a great summer vacay!

That would be so weird having the summer vacation swapped! How does it work out if you move their mid school year? Just curious.
You are so right, we need to cherish those memories!!
