How Time Flies...

Fun in the tub... 1999 (Garrett - 5-1/2; Hailey - 4; Hillary - 7-1/2; Grayson - 6 mo.)
This morning I sat in front of the computer for a couple of hours trying to get Hillary signed up for housing at BYU for Fall/Winter semesters. I have to do the same thing Monday morning for Summer semester which begins June 22 and when Hillary will move out and be on her own.

It made me reflect on how quickly time goes by... I have also been working on her scrapbooks with the goal of getting those completely up-to-date before she leaves home in a couple of months. This picture is one I wanted to add to one of her scrapbooks because these kids all look so darn happy.

The last reminder of how fast she grew up was when I called John this afternoon as he was at T-Mobile getting Hillary her early graduation present and instead of John answering his phone, Chan from Flips Gym answered his phone and said she had run into them and he knew I would want to talk to her so he handed her his phone. Well... she went on for five minutes saying she couldn't believe I had a child leaving for college and she remembers when Hillary started at Flips when she was tiny, etc., etc.

Time flies... whether we want it to or not!

Are you kids going to kill you for posting such a photo!!!! My son and daughter-in-law have a heart attack if I get the camera out to do a photo in the tub from the shoulders up!!!!! I think it's ADORABLE!

Very cute picture. I love it! Perfect blackmail material. I can't believe you are old enough to have a daughter heading off for college. You definitely don't look it. I already feel sad for the day Mikkall leaves. Crazy, huh? I want them to stay with me forever :) Ok, not really forever. You know that song by Carrie Underwood, "Don't Forget to Remember Me?" I cry every time I hear it.

How sad, they do grow up before you know it. I love your picture of the kids in the tub though..... who doesn't have a naked pic of their kids in the tub? I know i have several! (Michael thinks I'm crazy, but I don't care, I love it) Hillary better invite us to her wedding.......she'll be snatched up fast :)
