Passage of time

Jacob is in 8th grade now and informed me that he would start buying his lunch. Since kindergarten I have made the lunches of all 3 kids, now my youngest wants to eat like all his friends--they buy, they don't bring.

When I picked Jacob up from his youth group meeting tonight I wasn't quite sure what to do. My husband and I drove up, we saw Jacob up by the basketball goal. I looked at Paul and said "our oldest would have been mortified if I walked up to get him, but Jacob doesn't look like he will notice us." We waited, then decided to walk up. I tried to be cool. I wanted him just to notice we were there and not embarass him. He looked over and smiled.

Ahhh, the passage of time, but I love every stage of my children's lives.


  1. Hello Angie,
    I have been using your ancestry with my Cotton family and saw your blog. I too blog just started about 6 months ago and our backgrounds are alike. So now that I sound like a stalker (ha ha) I just wanted to say hello and I have enjoyed your writings. I use to teach in a PreK class and when they would all chant in "support" of a classmate == I also would wonder!!
    We have 2 children and have been married 24 years.

  2. Thanks for writing Deborah. I see your maiden name was Cotton. My Dad's mother was a Cotton. Let me know how we are related if you get the chance. Take care!
