One Moment | Liam is almost in High School

The title of this post says it all…we just got a letter about registering Liam for High School – in less than a month! Holy Guacamole! Are you kidding me?

The other day he came home and asked me if I could type up this “concrete poem” – which is a poem that is written in the shape of what it’s trying to illustrate. Amazingly, he asked for this in the afternoon, rather than at bedtime, so I was more than happy to type it up – and bless my soul, I know enough about illustrator that I could get the text drawn on a path quickly, so this was actually fun! I also really love the poem itself, so I thought I’d share it with you…while I contemplate the fact that this boy is going to be in high school next fall.

alamodestuff Linda has started a weekly meetup based on taking a moment each week to really notice something as you go about your daily grind life. I need to do this. You may want to too – read more about it here:
