It's almost August already?

I recall wanting time to hurry when I was a little girl. My wish has steadily picked up speed over the years! Y2K seemed like such a monumental deal - now that was EIGHT years ago. And over half this year has gone by.

(Smoothing out my clothes and standing up a little taller) Enough of this reactive living! Sheesh. :) Hug those kids a little more. Their growth parallels this heightened velocity. Abigail's already asking to use the potty here and there, and Amanda is now swimming on her own. Sigh. My babies are growing up.

Some Amanda layouts to share:

Have a wonderful day, and don't forget to say hi!

This summer has flown by! I have to start thinking about school again arghh! Jack is almost one and it feels like yesterday! I can so relate to your sentiment! Your LO's of Amanda are gorgeous as always!

Your layouts are gorgeous.
I need time to slow down, it is going way to fast for my liking. You have reminded me to make value of every minute.

Beautiful LOs! It's funny I had the same thoughts about Y2K the other day and how long ago that was. Time is really flying by. People used to always tell me that, especially when you have little kids, you turn around and they are grown!

Such gorgeous LOs, Heather! I can't believe how fast this year has gone, either. I absolutely cannot believe that it is AUGUST already.

Love your LO's! I try to tell myself to slow down but i nreality.. I tell my kids to hurry up all the time (hurry up get your shoes on. Hurry up get in the car... hurry up we're late)... I need to STOP that. Thanks for the reminder!

I *LOVE* to see your pages and hear your stories - your view on life and things of importance always makes me think a little more about things in my own life ... usually perfectly timed reminders of what is important. After a summer off of blogging (for the most part) I am looking forward to more regular updates on my own blog and keeping up better with you and my other friends in cyberspace!! Thanks for always being so sweet to take the time to stop my poor, neglected blog :)
