Y3 Week 39: Final Day of High School - Last School Bus Ride

Is this the little boy at play?

I don't remember growing older, 
When did they? 
When did he grow to be so tall? 
Wasn't it yesterday when they were small? 

Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days.
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers, 
Blossoming even as we gaze.

Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years, 
One season following another, 
Laiden with happiness and tears.

-Fiddler on the Roof

  11. I will not be original. This has been a heck of a ride, not only for you and your wonderful family, but also for us who. I will surely miss the smile you put on my face every day. Embarrassing our kids is an art, and nobody did it better than you.

    Regards from an Argentine living in Canada. God bless.

  12. Discovering your blog and following it has been a great experience. Your son is a very lucky young man to have parents like you.

    And you have to admit, the rest of the kids on the bus were pretty lucky too. Look what THEY had to look forward to every morning!

    I think you have some more waving to do. But it won't be every day anymore.

  13. You are an amazing dad ! Thank you very much...
