Day One Hundred Thirty Seven 2011



When grand daughter Shelby told me she got to bring her recorder home from school today, my dusty old mind immediately flashed on a cassette tape recorder. I couldn't imagine what she'd be doing with one of those. Maybe ancient technology relics show and tell. Then she showed me this beautiful little musical instrument that she's been learning how to play in music class. She played a couple of tunes and I recognized them, so the music lessons paid off. She's very proud of her recorder. Tomorrow she graduates from 4th grade. They won't have a formal ceremony--just recognizing the fourth graders and handing out awards for certain achievements. It will be her last class day at Capshaw. Thursday and Friday she and other fourth graders get to go to a camp and have some fun. Then it's off to middle school in late summer. As the song says, time keeps on slipping into the future.

Remembering my little brother Rob who passed away three years ago today. They say time heals all wounds, and it does, but this one is going to take a while.

Sweet picture! I think that's great that Shelby is learning to play an instrument. Good for her :0) Hard to believe this is her last week at Capshaw. Today has been a bittersweet day for sure! Hard to believe it's been three years since Rob passed. Time does help, but like you said, this one is going to take a while.

That's a cute picture. Sad that Shelby is done with elementary school. I know I hated it when Sarah & Julia left Sycamore. Time does march on, doesn't it?

Very cool that Shelby gets to learn an instrument! It's the same one that Dwight Shrute on The Office plays! Love it!!!
