Friday Haiku, September 3, 2010




Haiku My Heart Friday is a blessing from my friend Rebecca at recuerdo mi corazon. You can find more photos and Haiku there and find out how to participate.


First day of school year
No assignments behind yet
My God seventh grade! 



The Summer break is over. Grandkids are back in school. Anna is the oldest. School started this week, on the first. The time, as usual, has flown by and Anna is in seventh grade already. I thought writing Haiku about a life event is a good way to acknowledge it. Not just for Anna, but for the rest of the family, myself included. After all, "Time and motion wait for no man." (A quote by Reggie Perrin).

The clock never stops ticking, ever, no matter what I do or anyone else does. But I do savor the memories and they can last a lifetime. They can be remembered and smiled about. I hope I'm around when Anna and I look at this post and photos and laugh about her memories of seventh grade. In the event I'm not, I have made note of it here, on these pages, and on a hard drive. Someone will have it forever.

Anna is older than her brother and sisters and starts an hour earlier.




Anna and I both wish you Peace.

With strength so to smile
Through seasons fair and foul

This is third post I've read this week, sharing about their children going to school; some for the first time. And even though I don't have children of my own, I can somehow "feel" that feeling of time flying by, as they grow.

Anna is beautiful. Great eyes and smile.

Thank you for sharing this moment, Spadoman.

Wishing you and your famly a wonderful holiday weekend!

Peace.

This is a beautiful way to shore memories - using haiku as an album of great moments in our life.

They grow up fast, don't they? Hope her school year goes well...

thirteen years ago my eldest had his first day at school, and now he's about to start his last year

we talked about that the other night. . .

. . .they grow up so quickly! I'm so glad that Anna's sharing her growing up with you

but just how do they grow up so fast?

Oh my....she's precious. And she's a middle schooler! Gosh how fast that creeps up on a person.

Welcome to the first week of 7th grade, Anna.
And welcome to the g'dad who got to witness her joy....and who shared it here with us.

A poignant image and memory... Your haiku perfectly captures this transient moment. All of the best to Anna, embarking on this new adventure.

Isn't it amazing how fast kids grow up? Remember when you worried that you would never be a grownup? Hmmm.
