Where did the time go?

In less than a week my one and only child will be five years old...I just can't believe it! I was running an errand the other day and I asked Grant if he was excited about starting Kindergarten, he said "No, not really" and neither am I. But we have to face the inevitable and it won't be long when we will make the trip to Wal-Mart to buy school supplies, a back-pack, and lunch box. I tear up just thinking about dropping him off and letting him make his way without me there. The hardest part to consider is that once your child gets into school, the time really does fly by and before you know it, they are asking for the car keys. I am not worried about him making new friends, however, I am very worried about his mouth and how it could potentially get him into a lot of trouble. He's been the type of kid who is well behaved for other people, it's just his parents with whom he cops an attitude with. I am praying for his teacher and hoping that she will be a good fit for him. Being a teacher myself, it's probably going to be easy for me to scrutinize things so I will have to keep my own mouth shut unless I completely disagree with something I strongly believe in. So anyway, I just wanted to jot down my thoughts while I had a few minutes.

BTW, I took this photo on the day I graduated college and then a friend told me about PicNik, a photo editing website and I went there to enhance this picture. I love it!!! Thanks AP for the tip!!
