What does true love look like?

"Sometimes our light goes out but is blown 
into flame by another human being
Each of us owes deepest thanks to those 
who have rekindled this light." 
                                Albert Schweitzer

Mr. Lee was sharing that he had 
overheard someone say, "If you are lucky, 
you will spend 18 summers with your
My mother would say, "The best time
of your life is when your children are little."
This precious time is like youth lost on the young. 

We want to make the most of it, 
each and every moment.  
Summer is wrapping up.  The Get-Along-Gang
always tries to have a transition week 
from summer to fall. 

Unlike most of the parents we know, 
we are not excited to have school start. 
The beginning of school marks the 
beginning of strict bed times, homework
obligations, and darkness at dinner time.  

We've done this before and 
understand time is fleeting.
