I think the last week of school tugs at my heart strings every single year. The last few days of school and all the assemblies, end of the year programs, and force us to reconcile that time is marching on very quickly. It literally seems like weeks ago that we were taking our babies back to school in August and it is already time to say goodbye to another year, teacher, and memories.
As if the last week of school hasn't been emotional enough, I spent the day yesterday in my grandmother's house in Radford finding some treasures. She is in a nursing home now and two months ago my Dad put her house on the market. Amazingly this week a great offer was offered on her house. I am thankful this burden is off of my parents, but now the hard work comes of removing thirty plus years of stuff from their home.
