Every 4 Years We Vote for President and...

Take a picture by the waterfall at Eagle Point Park in Dubuque, Iowa! Wow, the kids have grown. I mean, I know that is a big "duh" to most parents, but when you compare two pictures from "then and now", it really hits you. As new parents people often told Mark and me, "Enjoy your kids while they're little because the years go by so fast" and we were like "Yeah, whatever--you come over and sit up all night with them or clean up their poops and pukes" but now that our oldest kids are in elementary school, we know the truth. Time has flown. The kids are so fun to be with--and we want to just freeze them at this age before they want nothing to do with us!!
A while ago I heard a saying about parenthood that went something like this, "The days go by slowly, but the years go by quickly." Oh so true.
So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. --Psalm 90:12
