Tuesday Morning Coffee

This is the last month of my son's last year in high school .

After drop-off on his first day of kindergarten a group of overanxious moms met for coffee to hold hands, share, cry and laugh.
Today is Tuesday.... and we are still meeting for coffee.

And guess what ? Next Fall, after college drop off....on Tuesday ...we will gather over at my house... or maybe Becky's house
to hold hands, share, cry, and laugh.

Ahhhhhhhh the power of friends dropping by for coffee.

I am so thrilled that you are back! I checked on you about once a month and almost deleted your link-so glad I didn't! I look forward to your "new-old" house project.

In 1990, we moved to a neighborhood with many small children. On the first day of school and for the next 6 years, we (moms) walked with our kids. Now these kids are Juniors in high school and like you and your friends, we have followed each others stories. My son to this day eats lunch with these kids.

They grow up so fast. It seems like we just turn around and they are little ones tugging at our pants. Turn around again and they are out of school, getting a job and getting married. Where do the years go?

It's wonderful you have a nice group of women to hang out with that all understand what each other is going through.

Joanne... it is WAY too fast isnt it... and we look in the mirror and dont recognize ourselves... Mary Jane...we bought our house in 1990 too... and were the youngest ones on the block... slowly young families moved in and now we are all in high school... as i said it is way too fast ! xo
