I had to promise not to write anything "stupid"
about this being the first day of school.
Nothing stupid.... Okay, I'll stick to the facts.
Julia is now in the 7th grade.
She is on the middle school volleyball team.
John is now in the 9th grade.
He is playing football.
I am so proud of them.
And... at the risk of being "stupid", this brings to mind the lyrics
from Sunrise, Sunset:
"I don't remember growing older,
WHEN DID THEY?"
(And that's a fact.)
