Today, I am taking Jake to school. Nothing unusual. But after I drop him off, Jadyn and I are marching into the school's office to complete her (gulp) Kindergarten registration.

In related news I am in complete denial that in a little over 2 weeks I will have a 7 year old. The following month Jadyn will turn 5. Wait. What? When did that happen?

Right now I have a 6 year old in 1st grade and a 4 year old in preschool. Why does the thought of having a 7 year old in 2nd grade and a 5 year old in kindergarten seem like a much bigger leap than just one short year? It just seems like such a big change, like where the heck did the last 5 years go? When did my babies get so grown up?

Sigh. So like I said. Denial.

I am in denial that my firstborn will be in Kindergarten next year. It just doesn't seem possible!

I know the feeling! I was telling my friends with babies turning one this year that it's much harder for me to have Elijah turning five than it is to see Sophia turning one!

Yeah, those ages do seem like big jumps. Experiencing the 4-5 jump here, and yes, it seems huge.
