Please make time slow down......

I don't feel like it can really be possible, yet it is....my little nephew starts FIRST GRADE on Monday!!! First grade!!! Eeek! Why does time have to go by so fast?!?

Well, starting first grade is a reason to celebrate, of course, so last night at family dinner night we had a cake for Jonathan and gave him some back to school supplies and some new outfits!
(Honestly...I just think my family will use any excuse to eat cake!)

OMG this kid just melts me!!!

How cute is he with his little friend Megan?! She lives in his neighborhood and my SIL babysits her a few days a week. It works out good because she and Jonathan enjoy playing with each other.
After this pic and the next one Jonathan was like, "Enough Auntie! I want cake!" Yup...no denying this kid is related to all of us!!!

You can't see it but he already stuck his fingers in the frosting...

Love it! My nephew is going into 5th grade!! He was supposed to go into 6th grade but he was held back in kindergarden...I totally understand what you say about time slowing down..seems like just yesterday I was holding him in my arms as a newborn...:( Now he is 12! Soon his voice is going to change and he will be a young man...waaaahhhhh!

Isn't being an aunt the absolute best?!? My eldest niece just turned five. I swear it was just yesterday that she was born. Time seems to go so much faster when you watch kids grow up.
