To recap how ridiculously fast THAT happened......here's one year ago.
And two years ago.
You can quip all the "aww shucks they grow up so fast" stuff that you want. And I guess there's no other meaningful, concise, casual way to say it than all of those Hallmark quotes already do. But if you sit and think about it, or talk about it with your very closest friends or family, the immensity of what is happening is absolutely overwhelming. Overwhelming blessings and responsibilities and joy and beauty and stress and financial outlay and lack of time and sleep and bewilderment and wonderment and investment.
It's happening so fast. I have so much to learn. So much to teach. And the days are filled with all of those things, and work on the land, and hours on the river. I've finally figured out that it will never stop swirling around. Never slow down. And to beware of that time when it does.
