There is no grade 9 grad or year end Banff Trip.

No pomp and circumstance. No grandiose celebrations. It appears that, time has in fact, slowed down. Slowed down our busyness. Slowed down our hectic displays of trying to keep things all together. Slowed down our ideas of what is really important.

For that I am glad. Growing up is happening so quickly now. Soon, our life will consist of watching our beautiful girls set out to conquer the world.

So if the world slows down just a little bit, then I will happily revel in the time. Being lazy, being together and being peaceful.
