The next few days I'll be reposting a few blogs from my MySpace page. Yea, I said it...that's really the first place I started blogging at all and there are only a few. I'm doing this before I delete the entire page. I tried to delete it tonight and it asks you about 152 times if you are sure. That last time I thought, wait, I need to save those blogs and keep them for posterity. So here goes...reposted along with dates so we can all see what I was thinking oh so long ago...

Children are amazing...
We went to Parent Orientation at Logan's school last night. He's in first grade. Last year, at the end of Kindergarten, I was just amazed by the amount of stuff he learned and how much he had progressed. I mean he can read! It is so amazing to me how much their little minds absorb and how they can remember stuff and learn new things. It just reminds me that he's not a baby anymore, he's a little person. He's so imaginative and he just says things all the time that are so off the wall. So grown up and you think, "where in the world does he learn that stuff?" So last night when his teacher was going over their curriculum and what the kids are expected to know by mid year and at the end of the year. I was just blown away by the fact that my kid will be that much smarter in 9 months. I can't believe he's grown up so fast. Now with Jack doing so much too I just think that it feels like just yesterday Logan was learning to walk and talk. Now he's learning to read and add and tell time and count money. Oh man. Kids are truly a gift from God to show us the simpler things in life.
I really think now that Teachers have the best job in the world (besides Moms) and I just want to thank all the teachers out there for using their skills and talents to shape our little one's minds.
P.S. My son Logan, the subject of this entry, will be celebrating his 9th birthday next week and will be going into the 4th grade next Fall. That time, she sure does fly.
