New vehicle on West Lake Drive

As I sat drinking my coffee this morning, there was a new vehicle coming down our
street that I hadn't seen for some time. It was holding up traffic and at one point,
I could count 12 cars backed up behind it. It was a "big orange school bus".
Now I know summer is really over! I hated to see it now just as I hated to see
it when my own children waited for it to come that first day of school.
As I drank my coffee and saw the big orange bus go by full of excited children, it took me back to some wonderful days. I didn't realize as much as I thought I did, how much I missed those days.

Not only did I know summer was over but I knew that my time with my children was going to be very limited and as each year came "my time" was used up more by home work, chores, baths etc.

My children are all grown up now and I am enjoying my grandchildren Now I am going to miss my grandchildren, more than I usually do. Not only is my time limited with them but I now have to share it with their mom. They get off the "big orange bus" at 4:00 and supper is 5:00 and they have to go to bed at 8:00. Not much time to share! Time goes by sooo fast. Enjoy EVERY minute you have. I wished I could have been there to see my grandchildren get on their "big orange bus" today, to give them a big hug and kiss and say "Enjoy your day, I will be here when you get home."

It is so true. We have to make sure we enjoy each moment with our kids, or in your case, your Grandkids. Right now we live in the basement of my parents house. They ALSO like to share in the time with us with our kids... except they aren't very good at sharing :)

Thanks for stopping by my other blog Real World Venus vs. Mars. I loved your comments!
