end of an era

an era is coming to and end
and I don't know how I feel
about it at all

my youngest child is now
entering into junior high
and I just may bawl

she is going to be in the youth group
with kids up through twelfth grade
I just want to stall

her growing up too fast
and hanging out with older kids-
though it does beat the mall.

I don't like this ad

when writing an ad
for an online post
sometimes I feel had
and just make the most

of the situation
although I may
rather not station
myself alongside what I say

at times it can be
a little difficult
to write on a touchy
item that seems too adult

for my little website
and I just don't know
exactly what to write
and it seems rather slow

I wish that I could pick
and choose each little ad
some I'd rather just kick
even if it's not considered "bad"

family scuba diving class

a new sensation-
breathing underwater-
I am still not sure
just how I feel
about it all-
but I know it
will make an
awesome family vacation

seeing the next generation
swimming around me
passing their skills
like nobody’s
is an astounding
thing for me to watch-
and makes me feel admiration

Me and my relation
are hopeful we’ll soon be
Together on a
Wonderful trip
Enjoying the beauty
Of the world
Rarely seen underwater-
It’s a fascinating creation

slow day

what to say
when there's
nothing to say

when it's a
rather (thankfully)
boring day

I am thankful
and can hope it
will stay

though I have
my doubts and
know the way

that things
become crazy
right away

I'm sure in no time
at all I'll be
too busy to play

Scuba Diving

Breathing while under water
is a wild proposition
And actually doing it puts me
in a crazy position.

Swimming in a pool
is fun, but not as much
fun as when we get to
places such

as the ocean. There
we will see
life in a whole new
view; makes me want to be

"away from it all"
where I can have
no television, no radio
no friends, not even a call.

Realizing it's me and the kids
who are diving
is a feat that I think
is worth high-fiving!

My daughter is twelve now
I just don't know how
it is already upon us
Where did it all go?

One thing I do know
Is that it is time to show
her just what she means to us
Before it's time for her to go.

Though she is still the same
girl with the same face and name
there is so much different now
And I wonder where did she go?

It is not long until I see
Her leaving without me
And I know that I'll be
proud when it's her time to go.
