Late this afternoon, I was sitting out on my front porch….watching. I like to people watch. The family that lives directly across the street from us were all out in their back yard. The smallest girl is about 12-18 months old, and she was running and fell……did this several times. Finally the dad yelled to her “slow down”. A few minutes later her sister sees her begin to run, and she yells at her “slow down”. About 20 minutes pass, and the people that live beside them came home. The dad walks up the stairs 2 at a time, and I watch his boy~~about 7ish~~copy his every move. Touching what dad touches, and struggling valiantly to go up the stairs 2 at a time.
That got me to thinking……what do my children see? Am I worth emulating? Do I want my kids to act like I do? We as parents all strive to be worthy of being emulated, but do we succeed? I hope I am. I pray I am.
On a different track…….I am sooooooo excited!!! We have only 3 weeks left of school! I think the boy will have 4 more weeks of math, but you never know……I might call it quits sooner…..a pox on algebra. A horrid, retched pox!!! The daughter finished her math today, and the boy finished grammar. Only 2 more subjects each. I will be glad when this year is over with. Wait……wait…..wait!!! I just realized that the boy will be a senior next year……I take it all back. School till forever!
What was the one thing that you remember most about your senior year?
