    Default Our Children, (why do they get big so fast) Thread

    Sitting here this morning thinking about my son's graduation ceremony today from 5th grade and remembering how little he once was and how quickly they grow up. I sure miss the 5 year old age and just how fun that was and just seeing how much knowledge and everything he has picked up in just 6 short years.

    When I took the scout den to learn about weather and watch a live news program 2007

    What a timely thread for me. My son Ben turns 8 today. 8!!!!! I still can't get my head around that. I am enjoying every second with him I can because there are a limited number of years left before dad isn't the coolest guy on the planet anymore.

    I've always been curious as to how the American 'grades' equate to our 'years'. My little boy is 6 - what grade would he be in?

    I don't have any kids, but my Niece, Brittany, will be 20 in December. That just doesn't seem right.

    My son Jayson will be 9 in a few weeks. I was watching his Little League practice this weekend and it's pretty remarkable how far these kids have come along in the past 3 years. Back in the T-ball days kids couldn't get anyone out and they ran the bases endlessly on slow rollers to the mound while parents laughed their asses off. Now the kids are turning double plays and hitting for power and the parents are getting serious.

    Congrats to Ben on his graduation.

    Me too, I can't believe that my ten year old is five foot three already.

    My best friends oldest just turned 15 in April and he's pushing 6' 2" which is something else since Jake is a hair over 5' 11" and his wife is about 5' 6".

    You'd wonder who his Dad was if he didn't look just like him!

    what I want to know is when did we start to have 5th grade graduations?

    ah the good ol days when a kid had to complete 12 years of school (no kindergarten back then) in order to wear a cap and gown


    now they graduate from pre school, graduate from elementary school, graduate from middle school and graduate from high school

    that's a lot of gift giving occasions I got gypped out of

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    We don't have any graduations from school at all - it's not until you leave university (aged at least 21) that you get to wear a cap and gown! Well, unless you're old-fashioned and wear them to bed, that is!

    I can't believe Gav will be 5 come August. It boggles the mind. Seems like just yesterday I was holding him in the palm of my hand, literally. He's now over 4 ft. tall, playing soccer, t-ball, swimming and on his way to becoming the world's greatest drummer.
