Where did the time go?

So…I’m back! Again!

It’s been 3 months since I last posted and to be honest, I’m still not sure what I want to do with this space. I don’t want to leave it yet since I’ve spent so many years here and it just feels sad to leave it all behind.

In fact, I’m not sure why I suddenly felt the need to post today. I guess a large part of it is because E finished up 1st grade yesterday. It’s always bittersweet for me since I like watching her grow up and learn how to be more independent but at the same time, it’s a bit sad to see that yet another year has slipped by and she is getting older and becoming more independent.

K is also growing up quickly. She is talking a lot more than she was at the beginning of the year. Pretty soon we will be enrolling her into preschool and once that happens, time is going to slip by even faster.

I don’t know why but it feels like school ages our kids so much faster than when they were in daycare or with us everyday.

In the past 3 months, I’ve taken up running again and am on a journey to building a stronger endurance and stamina for running so that I can run Tokyo Marathon in 2018. It seems so far away and impossible for me to do but I’m working on it slowly and steady.

So much is changing in our lives but at the same time, many things are still the same. I guess we’ll see what happens in the coming weeks.

    Wow. I remember when you just had one! Life goes by so fast and I am in total agreement with you…that school ages our kids. I don’t know if it’s because it sucks the childhood or sweet nature of kids right out of them but it is sad. Sigh.
    But it is good to see you back. I just started back blogging in March. It’s good to be back…and to see you posting every now and again.
